Infrastructure and Transportation
Horizon City boasts a robust infrastructure and recently made capital investments to its water, wastewater and drainage systems. It also has spent top-dollar to build up its manufacturing district.
With ample affordable land, the city’s commercial districts are primed to rev up with value-added manufacturing operations that can link up with the massive clusters of manufacturers just minutes away in Mexico. The region spanning West Texas, southern New Mexico and northern Mexico boasts over 2.5 million residents and ranks as the seventh largest concentration of manufacturing employees in North America.
Horizon City has engaged in an unprecedented partnership with El Paso County to invest in our transportation infrastructure. Those projects are part of a $2 billion region-wide transportation plan to sustain long-term growth in commerce and trade. Three of Horizon City’s main thoroughfares connect directly with nearby Interstate 10, a major east-west corridor. Close-by U.S. 54 provides access to Midwest hubs along its north-south route.
The region’s commercial aviation is served by the El Paso International Airport, just 23 minutes away.
