New Mexico Route 594?
« on: June 15, 2013, 05:30:52 PM »

Does anyone know of the existence of New Mexico Route 594?  The NMDOT logs say:

FROM JUNCTION NM599 (THE SANTA FE RELIEF ROUTE), NORTHWESTERLY TO JUNCTION NM4 (NEAR WHITEROCK).

and that the route is exactly a mile long.

This makes no sense, as Whiterock is much more than a mile from NM 599 in Santa Fe, and I don't see any route connecting them directly anyway.

I'm assuming it's just an error and will omit it from the NM state highways in the CHM project.  But if anyone can tell me where a state route 594 does exist in NM, I'd be happy to learn about it so I can include it.

"This appears to be a placeholder for a future route planned as a direct route between Santa Fe and Los Alamos."

Apparently it may have been NM 516 as well?

Thanks.  Odd that they include it in the log as if it exists.

Certainly no signage from NM 4, since I drove the entire route. It's conceivable that 1 mile of it was designated over some existing road from the 599 end.

This is the only corridor that makes sense to me:
https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=216944742827996177351.0004df59549b1c1e79ea9&msa=0&ll=35.767686,-106.067505&spn=0.255448,0.528374

Only about a mile of it does not currently exist (although there is the small matter that this short segment would require a bridge over the Rio Grande).  Any route further south would go through Nat'l Forest lands, and would have terrain challenges.  Anything further north wouldn't be worth building, because it wouldn't offer much advantage over the existing route between Santa Fe and White Rock (US 285 - NM 502 - NM 4).

Not unheard of. I've occasionally run across phantom routes in the CDOT route logs for projected or future highways.

Resurrecting this thread because there's a 9-15-2019 article in the ABQ Journal about some Rio Grande bridge proposals, one of which would have to be selected if NMDOT decides to invest in reducing the driving distance between Los Alamos and Santa Fe.  Unfortunately you may have to sign up for an account to read it, but it is interesting.  For example:
Quote
One option in the report is for a bridge 1,020 feet above the Rio Grande and is called the Montoso Peak Alternative. This would be highest bridge in the United States. The Royal Gorge Bridge over the Arkansas River in Colorado is the tallest now, at 955 feet.

If NM is serious about dropping a bunch of money on a road project, it should really be redirected to the Albuquerque area which could use some decent upgrades. A massive project like this will run in the billions of dollars and cut a whopping 8 miles off the Los Alamos-Santa Fe route.

It would be like NM-347 in Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties. NMDOT's route log has 347 beginning at I-40 west of Albuquerque and continuing in a northerly direction for nearly 30 miles to its northern terminus at US-550. Presently, only the northernmost 10 or so miles of 347 are built and open to traffic, with the remaining 20 miles awaiting funding for construction.
