Has anyone  used  US 84/285  freeway north os Santa Fe to Pojuaque?  It is real pleasure to drive on,with Indian names on the overpasses,  ( each overpass has a  unique Tewa name on the overhead part of the overpass).  The  sound barrier walls have animal designs as well.  It goes past a huge new casino here called the Buffalo Thunder, which opened last summer.

Bickendan:
I've been on it, but it was several years ago.

J N Winkler:
I have been on it multiple times and actually managed to obtain a partial set of construction plans for it.  The bridge designs are a particular treat.

NMDOT is increasing the speed limit on US 285 between Roswell and Vaughn to 75 mph:

This is the second non-Interstate highway in New Mexico to have a 75 mph speed limit (the first being US 70 through White Sands).

That is such a lonely highway. There is absolutely nothing in that stretch. It looks like someone tried once upon a time to operate a gas station along there, but it failed.
