University Avenue Corridor Study - Phase B (CN LC00290)

The New Mexico Department of Transportation is conducting an open house to collect input on the preferred alternative design for roadway and drainage improvements for the University Ave Corridor Study. The Study evaluated the transportation needs to enhance the existing two-lane roadway from Avenida de Mesilla to S. Main Street. The corridor is highly used by pedestrians and bicycles with access to Zia Middle School, local neighborhoods and as a gateway to connect to the Town of Mesilla, City of Las Cruces and New Mexico State University.
