-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

New Mexico Department of Transportation improvements to NM502/DP Road have been put on hold for a couple of years.

During Tuesday night’s county council meeting, NMDOT Tech Support Engineer David Martinez and Project Development Engineer David Quintana presented council with an update and laid out plans for what’s in store for that stretch of road.

According to the county’s website, the general scope of this project includes pavement rehabilitation/reconstruction of NM502 from Knecht Street to Tewa Loop, DP Road intersection realignment and improvements, Canyon Road intersection realignment, drainage improvements involving a storm drain from DP Road towards Canyon Road, curb and gutter with sidewalk enhancements, along with miscellaneous safety improvements.

Quintana said pedestrian enhancements and sidewalk work is part of the plan. He also said NMDOT will do pedestrian observations the last week of June and two weeks into July. “We’re doing pedestrian observations to get more facts about what kinds of movements pedestrians are doing on NM502,” Quintana said.
