Loop 375 partially encircles the city of El Paso, Texas. Locally, it is known as Woodrow Bean Transmountain Drive in the Northern section, Purple Heart Memorial Freeway in the Northeastern section, the César Chávez Border Highway in the southern section, and Joe Battle Boulevard in the eastern section.

The Texas Department of Transportation has announced plans to add toll lanes to the Border Highway portion of Loop 375 between Downtown El Paso and the Ysleta–Zaragoza International Bridge. TxDOT and the El Paso Metropolitan Planning Organization have offered several plans to build the Western leg of the loop from Downtown to Canutillo, Texas: Though not finalized, preliminary plans have included upgrading US 85/Paisano Drive to freeway status from Downtown to Sunland Park Drive allow Loop 375 to run conncurrently with Interstate 10 between Sunland Park Drive and Woodrow Bean Transmountain Road at Canutillo. In 2012, construction commenced of the freeway upgrade from Dyer Street east to I-10. This expansion has proved controversial, as the western leg of Transmountain Road passes through the protected Franklin Mountains State Park.[1]

  • Clockwise, Loop 375 ends in downtown El Paso at US 62-85 Paisano Drive.
  • Counterclockwise, Loop 375 ends in Canutillo at Texas Hwy 20.
