Projects In The Design Phase

(CN 6100970/6100971) US 491 and Carbon Coal Road Improvement Project Public Meeting Presentation (McKinley County)

Project Information:
The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), in cooperation with McKinley County, proposes to reconstruct Carbon Coal Road into a four-lane paved roadway with 12-foot (ft) lanes and 8-ft shoulders. The project also includes realignment of the east end of Carbon Coal Road to intersect with US 491 at the existing location of South Chino Loop, realignment of South Chino Loop to intersect with Carbon Coal Road as a T-intersection, and improvements to US 491 and 9th Street at the intersection to accommodate traffic flow, address pavement deficiencies and various other improvements.

The project is 5.2 miles in length, with the Beginning of Project (BOP) at the intersection of Carbon Coal Road and Mentmore Road and the End of Project (EOP) on 9th Street 0.14 miles southeast of its intersection with US 491. The east side of the project area includes the intersection of Carbon Coal Road with US 491, a major highway connecting Interstate 40 to Shiprock. At the west side of the project area, Carbon Coal Road terminates at Mentmore Road, a small roadway that leads to the community of Mentmore to the south and a rail loop, truck-to-rail transport facility to the north. The project area is located north of the city of Gallup, in McKinley County, New Mexico (see map below).


This project is financed by the NMDOT with state funds and has been assigned NMDOT Project and Control Number (CN) 6100970 for project design and CN 6100971 for construction.
