The City of El Paso has issued a Request for Proposals for the second phase work on a well-used public park on the northeast side of the city.
Located at 11270 McCombs Street, the Joey Barraza and Vino Memorial Park is expected to see the construction of a fenced dog park space and new soccer park.
The project will also entail some demolition, as well as the construction of traffic control devices, electrical improvements, new solar lights, and both benches and trash receptacles.
Additional work will include the installation of new gates and chain link fencing, rock walls, and a prefabricated bridge and prefabricated shed for both electric and irrigation controls.
Named in honor of the late Border Patrol officer Jose “Joey” Barraza, who was also a K-9 handler with a German Shepard named Vino, the park last year saw the building of new electrical and plumbing infrastructure, as well as concrete speed tables and bleachers.
The RFP has a submission deadline of April 21.
