Rail lines connecting Paisano Drive to Father Rahm Street in South El Paso are set to be welded within a few weeks as part of the $97 million Streetcar Project expected to debut in 2018, an official said Wednesday.
"It will be another exciting moment for this project," said Raymond Telles, executive director of the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority.

The first rail lines were welded June 22 when workers joined the first set of steel lines along Oregon Street, from Glory Road to University Avenue, Telles told those attending the El Paso Central Business Association luncheon at the Camino Real Hotel.

About 35 pieces of girder rail will be used to make up each of the left and right rail tracks along 1,900 feet of street, representatives of RailWorks Track Systems said. The New York-based company and California-based Granite Construction have joined forces to form Paso del Norte Trackworks, which will build the infrastructure, including constructing the tracks and overhead wires.
