(CN 6101390) I-40/US 491 Interchange Safety Improvement Study (McKinley County)

Study History

In 2019, the City of Gallup and the NMDOT developed the Gallup Area Transportation Safety Plan that identified the I-40/US 491 interchange as a high-priority area for safety and traffic mitigation measures.  In the fall of 2020, NMDOT started a Phase IA/B Study to identify options to make the interchange area safer for all users and examine how the interchange can work better with Maloney Avenue/US 491 intersection.

Public Information Meeting:

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) and the City of Gallup are hosting a 2nd public information meeting on the I-40/US-491 interchange safety improvement study (CN 6101390).  The meeting will provide an overview of the project, including an overview of the options studied and the environmental impacts of the preferred alternative. The meeting will also be an opportunity for the public to ask questions and provide comments. 

Electronic comments will be accepted for two weeks after the presentation.  Thank you in advance for participating and providing feedback on these issues and potential solutions.  For more information on the project background and previous presentations, please visit the NMDOT projects website:  https://dot.state.nm.us/content/nmdot/en/ProjectD6.html#6101390
