Wonder What All the Pink Flags Along East Road Are About?

The pink flags seen dotting either side of the road in the east part of town are part of the surveying work underway for the N.M. 502/Trinity Design Project from about the Crossroads Bible Church driveway on East Road  and along Trinity Drive up to Knecht Street. This project is being funded in the FY2014 NMDOT District 5 State Transportation Improvement Program in the amount of $3.8 million. The County Capital Improvement Program has $1.125 million allocated for the County’s match. Total available funding is $4.925 million. Design is underway, with construction anticipated to begin in late 2014 or early 2015, with completion in late 2015. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com
