Tigua Tribe wants to work with city on highway route

The Tigua Tribe of Texas is opposing a proposed route for a highway in El Paso.

Gov. Arturo Senclair said the route goes through one of the tribe's main ceremonial sites. The tribe proposed alternate routes but they were rejected, he said.

The city stands to lose $20 million in federal and state money if it can't figure out a way to extend the Lee Treviño highway. The city attorney is being asked for a legal opinion on the Tigua Tribe's objections.
