NMDOT Prepared for Arctic Blast


SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is prepared for the arctic front that’s scheduled to hit New Mexico on Sunday. 

The biggest impact is expected to be seen in NMDOT District 4, headquartered in Las Vegas, which encompasses the northeast corner of the state.

Approximately 80 dump trucks with snowplows and salt and cinder spreaders in District 4 are loaded and ready to go. All patrol crews that could be impacted have been preparing for the storm, readying vehicles and receiving briefings on both weather and expected roadway conditions.

Our Traffic Management Center, which monitors road conditions throughout the state, will be fully staffed and will update our road conditions website, nmroads.com,on an ongoing basis. 

Motorists and the media can log onto the website and/or call our 511 road hotline to stay informed. You can also download the nmroads.com app to your mobile phone to stay updated on the go.
