SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Transportation resumes work April 1 on the newly built NM 599 Interchange in Santa Fe.
The interchange facilitates public access to South Meadows Road, West Alameda Street, and County Road 62 and gives the public a safer way to cross NM 599 to reach neighborhoods and facilities on the west side of the city.
There will be flagging operations at the roundabouts and at the bridge. The right-hand lanes of NM 599 northbound and southbound will be closed during the first phase of work.
Later, the left-hand lanes of NM 599 northbound and southbound will be closed.
Crews will be grinding, striping, and adding a final seal coat to the roadway. The new bridge will be painted, as will the art work on the bridge abutments.
The ground will be seeded and the entire project will be completed by mid-June. Contractors include Bogan Brothers Painting Co. and AUI, Inc.
NMDOT urges motorists to proceed through the work area with caution, watch for traffic control signing, and observe reduced speed limits.
