A tunnel would work for a few reasons.
1. It would be toll road. The novelty would generate a great deal of local revenue.
2. Use existing arteries. A tunnel going from Executive Center to Fred Wilson or Hondo Pass would open a new route to EP's Entertainment district & open up access routes to Ft. Bliss and Beaumont.
3. The engineers at TXDot would secretly drool over the prospect of a tunnel. Something they really couldn't build anywhere but El Paso.
The problem is the vision thing and neighborhood factionalism. After all how could Eddie Houlgin support a measure that would link the NE and the Westside.
P.S. Why the hell does it have to RV friendly again?

A Tunnel? What a horrible idea.
The Franklins are defaced by:
1. TV and Radio Station.
2. High School Letters.
3. Rock Quarry for rock fences.
4. Transmountain Road
5. Scenic Drive
6. Homes for the rich.
7. The Sun Bowl.
8. Interstate 10.
Probably the next suggestion will be to flatten out the Franklins for the developers.

What a remark to make, that a Tunnel is a such a novelty that it would generate income.
The one gem EP has and the fact that is located at the END OF THE ROCKIES and people want to drill a hole in it.

You know the EPCC is taking students but the government Pell Grants are stopped for now and my son-in-law does not know if he is going to be able to continue at school on the Pell Grants if the government does not approve of a budget. It is nice the EPCC helps people but they need to be able to help them find funding to get through the years it takes to get their degree or to take the schooling and go for the final classes at UTEP or NMSU.

A tunnel would be a great idea.
I came up with it years ago.
You could also put a stip mall inside and make it a wonder of the world.
