Traffic Advisory NM 599 & County Road 62 Interchange Project
Traffic Detoured onto Newly Built Ramps
Santa Fe – The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) in early April began construction of a new connector interchange project located at NM 599 and County Road (CR) 62 in Santa Fe County.
Starting Wednesday June 6 – December 2012, Traffic will be detoured from the northbound and the southbound lanes to the newly built ramps. There will be lane closures on the northbound and southbound lanes of NM 599 between mile post 6 and mile post 7.
The cross roads between the frontage roads to NM 599 and County Road 62 will remain closed. The east and west frontage roads on NM 599 will remain open. Travelers can use County Road (CR) 70 as an alternate route to cross NM 599. CR 70 is 2.3 miles north of CR 62.
Travelers can expect minor delays between the hours 7:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be a reduced speed to 35 mph in the work zone.
During this next phase of construction, there will be construction activities taking place on the right-of-way. The contractor will begin building the new round abouts and new bridge.
Drivers are asked to watch for construction personnel working the area, observe temporary construction signing, and reduce speed to the posted speed limits.
The new interchange will improve safety for the traveling public by providing an access controlled interchange.
Questions can be directed to Rosanne Rodriguez, Public Information Officer for the New Mexico Department of Transportation District Five, at (505) 476-4205.
