At last week’s Transportation Board meeting, resident Patricia Max introduced a letter from Kathy Bender, deputy secretary of the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT). The letter was in response to an inquiry by Max concerning the NM 502 Corridor Study for Trinity Drive.
Max – who is opposed to the Trinity Drive options under consideration – had detailed her concerns in a letter to NMDOT Cabinet Secretary Alvin Dominguez dated July 8, 2011.
The bulk of the response concerned a NMDOT corridor study for NM 502/Trinity Drive from Knecht Street to Tewa Loop. In 2007, after gathering public input, NMDOT selected a preferred alternative for that segment of roadway and dedicated $4.5 million to the project.
