Purpose of the Meeting: To present the recommended preferred alternative and to receive comments from the public. New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) project team members will be present to discuss US 550 and the study. The public is encouraged to ask questions and provide comments. Comments will also be received on bicycle, pedestrian, and equestrian issues as well as natural resources and cultural resources.
Meeting Overview and Agenda: Project team members will be discussing corridor study findings and the recommended preferred alternative. The NMDOT is conducting a corridor study to identify short-term and long-term transportation improvements for US 550 between NM 313 (Milepost 0.75 [MP 0.75]) and NM 528 (MP 2.75). The US 550 corridor carries a significant volume of daily traffic, especially during the morning and afternoon peak periods, resulting in re-occurring traffic congestion. The roadway serves local, regional, and statewide transportation functions. As part of the detailed evaluation of alternatives (Phase 1-B), future options for roadway design, traffic management, access management, drainage improvements, bicycle facilities, and pedestrian facilities are being studied. The agenda consists of an open house, presentation, and question and answer session. The US 550 alternatives can be viewed on-line at www.keepmoving550.com.
