I-25/Missouri

CN-LC00100

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is initiating the Interstate 25 (I-25) / Missouri Bridge Replacement Study to develop and evaluate alternatives for replacing Missouri Bridge at I-25 in Las Cruces.

Phase I: I-25/Missouri Bridge

Southbound traffic will continue to have two lanes open with restrictions of 11 feedt due to work within close proximity. Norrthbound traffic to be reduced to one lane with a lane restriction of 11 feet. Detour paving on Interstate 25 will impact traffic accessing I-25/University. The contractor will also have crew members working on drainage structures for northbound roadway widening.

Phase II: I-25/Missouri Bridge

Southbound traffic to reduce to one lane prior to crossing the I-25/Lohman Bridge in order to support the switch in traffic of I-25 northbound lanes.  Southbound I-25 on ramp at Lohman creates a second southbound lane through the Missouri Bridge project.

Northbound lanes will be restricted to one lane. All two lanes will be restricted to 11 feet.

Construction will involve the removal of the I-25 southbound bridge structure and a portion of the I-25 roadway. The Demolition of the existing bridge will occur during a full closure of Missouri Avenue.  This will include removal of the existing median drop inlets and construction of the median drop inlets and connections to the existing drainage structures. The second phase will start in late March of 2015 and is scheduled to take approximately 4 Months.

I-10/Avenida de Mesilla Interchange
COMPLETED
CN-1100361

The projectis complete and consisted of replacing the steel girder bridges with a concrete bridge with full height abutments, precast concrete deck panels and artwork featuring a local southwest theme. The ramps will be reconfigured to a diamond interchange with the removal of the existing loop ramps, which will provide a longer acceleration lane on I-10. In addition, there will be signalization installed at Avenida de Mesilla and the eastbound entrance and exit ramps. The project will incorporate ADA improvements to Avenida de Mesilla from Hickory Loop to Lakeside Drive, which includes utility upgrades to the gas; sewer, water lines, and landscape planting.

Cambray Bridge Replacement
NM-549/Union Pacific Railroad Crossing

These environmental documents are part of the Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluations that consist of the replacement of the existing Cambray railroad overpass on NM 549 and associated improvements to the adjacent roadway in Luna County, New Mexico. Improvements to the roadway are proposed by the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Cambray Bridge Improvements EA was developed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Code of Federal Regulations (Title 23 CFR Part 771), and the NMDOT Location Study Procedures (NMDOT, 2000a). The purpose of proposed improvements is to address existing deficiencies, improve safety, and to insure the future viability of the NM 549/Union Pacific Railroad crossing in providing for the safe and efficient movement of vehicular and train traffic within the project area.
