N.M. 502 takes another turn
More than a year ago, council decided to table plans to redesign the entire length of Trinity Drive and focus on a small portion of N.M. 502 already approved for federal funding in FY2014.
A Technical Advisory Committee comprised of staff and citizen stakeholders was charged with evaluating various plans and presenting a recommendation to the transportation board.
In February, the transportation board and council both approved a plan to redesign a section between DP Road and Airport road.
The plan changed again in December when it failed to meet NMDOT and FHWA approval, risking $3.8 million in State Transportation Improvement Program funds earmarked for the project.
The February proposal called for two lanes with left turn medians through the Eastern Area. NMDOT and FHWA advised the county it must widen the highway to four lanes between Central Avenue and an area just east of Canyon Road to meet level of service for side streets in the area.
