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.

NM 152 Bridge Replacement Project

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) District One will begin a large, dual bridge replacement project on NM 152.

The Federal Highway Administration ‐ Central Federal Lands Highway Division (FHWA‐CFLHD) in coordination with the NMDOT, will begin preliminary roadwork on the replacement of two existing bridges on NM 152 between Hillsboro and Kingston. The bridges are located five and seven miles west of Hillsboro within Sierra County. NM 152 is a major collector that connects Interstate 25 to US 180. The route traverses the Gila National Forest.

Implementation of the project will address the structural and functional inadequacy of the two existing bridges, which have condition ratings of “poor” or less. The project will also increase safety by replacing single‐lane bridges with two‐lane bridges, thereby providing more reliable emergency and maintenance vehicle access, in comparison to the current bridges which are restricted by width and height limitations.

Contractor will work Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The contractor has begun constructing detours on NM 152. Slow down and use caution in the area. Watch for shoulder work and large trucks turning on the roadway.
