Plutonic Panda:
New Mexico DOT is asking for almost 900 million in additional funding. Hopefully they get it and fund much needed projects.

Two projects at the top of my list that should be prioritized: the I-25/Montgomery interchange reconstruction, and straightening out the dreaded S-curve on I-25 through downtown Albuquerque.

Has anything started in SE NM, in the oil fields?  They did have some terrible "improvements" slated for US -285 SE of Carlsbad.  A THREE LANE poor boy.  Simply awful.  That stretch, all the way S to Pecos, should be Expressway grade, divided four lane.  Access maintained, for oil field interests and ranchers, but some full interchanges at certain intersections.  Crap.   Yes am aware Texas did a poor boy three lane, south of the NM state line, that is equally bad.  Clearview also, served on top.

They've been working in phases on Highway 285 from Artesia to the TX state line, with the ultimate goal of 285 being 4 lanes along that entire stretch. From what I've seen thus far, they are "pulling a US-550" with 2 lanes in each direction, separated by a 3-foot rumble strip centerline rather than a physical median divider.

No one cheaps out on a four-lane expansion like New Mexico!
