Corridor Study: The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is initiating a roadway

inadequate pedestrian facilities, drainage facilities, and street lighting.
Intersection improvements may be needed at Pine Street, 32 Street By-Pass, and other intersections in the corridor. The NMDOT is initiating a corridor study to obtain information on the existing roadway condition, identify needs for improvement, and develop and evaluate alternatives for roadway improvement.
Environmental studies will also be conducted.
Public Information Meeting Purpose: To present known roadway needs, present initial
concepts, and receive comments from the public. NMDOT project team representatives will be
