The scope of the project has been adjusted to include only the construction of a 2-lane all-weather roadway within existing right-of-way owned by Sandoval County.

The project will begin 3.06 miles north of the Bernalillo County line and extend north for 2.12 miles to Alice King Way. The proposed roadway will consist of two 12-ft driving lanes and 3.7-ft shoulders. The roadway will have a gravel surface and will be designed to meet a design speed of 50 miles per hour. Drainage improvements will be provided where the roadway crosses existing water flows.

Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended, FHWA, in cooperation with the NMDOT, is preparing a categorical exclusion for the proposed improvements. While hard copy comments are preferred, comments by electronic mail may be sent to
