    Plans for a roadway in the Upper Valley are underway as phase II of the River Bend Project is about to begin.

    The City of El Paso wants to share how the road work will impact residents in an Upper Valley neighborhood.

    The new construction will happen across the street from St. Matthew Catholic School.

    Thursday night, City Rep. Cissy Lizarraga is hosting a meeting to talk about what's left of the project.

    CBS4 spoke with a city spokesperson before the meeting.

    City of El Paso Lead Public Affairs Coordinator Tammy Fonce says construction is expected to start early next month and this phase of construction is expected to last about nine months.

    Construction and improvements will be made on River Bend Drive between Sunset and Frontera roads.

    A hike and bike trail, bus stops and more lights will be installed along the road.

    The meeting will be at Zach White Elementary School in the cafeteria at 6 p.m.

    The school is located at 4256 Roxbury.

    Phase I of the project is completed; a hike and bike trail was installed just down the street just off of Turnstone Drive.
