NM Highway 22 & Southern Pueblos 88 Interchange Project

Scope:  The NMDOT, in cooperation with the FHWA, is proposing improvements to the NM 22 and SP 88 interchange in Santo Domingo Pueblo.  NM 22 serves several communities and recreation areas along its route between I-25 and Cochiti Dam. These include Santo Domingo Pueblo, Pena Blanca, Cochiti Pueblo and Cochiti Lake. The study area is located where New Mexico 22 crosses over SP/BIA 88 and where the loop ramp connects NM 22 to SP/BIA 88, between the New Mexico Rail Runner Express tracks, also known as the Mateo Overpass, and the bridge over Galisteo Creek. The study focuses on two major areas of concern: the SP/BIA 88 underpass below NM 22 and the NM 22 intersection with the loop ramp that connects to SP/BIA 88.

Because we are not able to hold in-person meetings at this time, we are hosting a virtual public meeting to summarize the findings of the engineering and environmental analyses and present the recommended alternatives.  The meeting will involve a short presentation with time available for the community to share concerns, ask questions, and discuss the proposed improvements.  Please see below for more details on how to PARTICIPATE and to access PROJECT RESOURCES available.

NM 14 Study and Rehabilitation

Scope:  The New Mexico Department of Transportation is planning several improvements on NM 14 over the next several years.  These improvements and anticipated funding and construction timeframes are as follows:

  • Pavement Rehabilitation in three phases:
    • Phase 1: Milepost 0 to 2, Completed Fall 2018
    • Phase 2: Milepost 2 to 4, Funding programmed in 2018 and 2019, Anticipated Construction Spring/Summer 2019
    • Phase 3: Milepost 4 to 6, Spring 2020
  • Slope Stabilization for slope on east side on NM 14 between milepost 3.5 and 4.2. TBD 
  • Intersection Evaluation of NM 14 / NM 536 / Frost Rd intersection and development of alternatives for reconstruction. TBD

I-25 South Corridor Study

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is conducting an engineering study for the South I-25 Corridor from the NM 47/Broadway Interchange to the I-40/I-25 Interchange.

Project Purpose:

The objective of the study is to identify transportation needs in the corridor and to develop a priority plan that will enable the NMDOT to program funds for both near and long term projects.

Public Meetings:

The team offers the public updates on the status of the study and the findings of the detailed analysis at public meetings. The team seeks comments from the public as part of the evaluation of the alternatives prior to deciding on a preferred improvement alternative for the corridor.

If you have questions about the study please contact:

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
