NM 314 and Courthouse Rd. Intersection

Scope:  The New Mexico Department of Transportation will be reconstructing the intersection of NM 314 and Courthouse Rd in Los Lunas due to identified safety issues.  The safety issues include skewed intersection geometry, close proximity of the rail crossing to the intersection, and a lack of dedicated turning lanes on NM 314. Planned improvements include realigning either Courthouse Rd or Juan Perea Rd to intersect NM 314 at Colonial Avenue, adding northbound and southbound left turn lanes and a northbound right turn lane on NM 314, and reconstructing the rail crossing, pedestrian trail, and sidewalks at the new intersection location.

Anticipated Start Date:  Spring 2020

Project Sponsor: NMDOT

Public Meeting:  A public meeting will be held on May 23rd, 2018 at 6:30 pm at the Los Lunas Transportation Center (101 Courthouse Rd, Los Lunas, NM 87031).  The purpose of the meeting is to present the safety issues identified with the existing intersection configuration, the improvement alternatives under consideration, the planned public involvement process, and to solicit comments from the public.
