NMDOT continues work on U.S. 84/285 just north of Pojoaque between mile markers 182.4 and 183.2. The scope of the project includes new bridge construction with new on and off ramps, new roadway lighting, and pavement reconstruction for 0.72 miles within Santa Fe County.
There will be a switch in traffic on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 24. The northbound U.S. 84/285 traffic will be taken off of the northbound on and off ramps and placed on the newly constructed southbound U.S. 84/285 lanes, travelling in a northbound direction through the project limits. Northbound traffic will return to the existing NB U.S. 84/285 lanes at the north end of the project.
The slip ramp to the east frontage road will be closed for approximately two weeks. Travelers can access the east frontage road at CR 88 (La Pueblo Road).
The posted speed limit is 35 mph through the work zone. Motorists’ speed is being monitored by the New Mexico State Police.
NMDOT urges motorists to proceed through the work zone with caution, watch for construction personnel, observe traffic control signing, and reduced speed to the posted speed limit.
