Next Phase of the NE/SE Connector Road Project Delayed Due to Supply Chain Issues

SANTA FE, NM- While preparing for the construction of the second round-about for the NE/SE Connector Roads Project, Santa Fe County was notified that due to extended waterline material lead times and scheduling, the closure at Richards Ave. and Dinosaur Trail, previously scheduled for August 14, 2023, will need to be postponed until late August or early September.  

Regretfully, a full detour will need to be established weeks after the start of the school year. Santa Fe County has been in coordinator with Santa Fe Public Schools in preparation for the detour. Residents, please be aware that the detour may impact routes to Amy Biehl, IAIA, Santa Maria de la Paz, Santa Fe Community College, Bicycle Technologies International, The Academy for Technology and the Classics, and Easter Seals Disability Services. Santa Fe County will publish an official press release when the full closure will be initiated.   

We want to thank constituents for their patience as traffic detours may delay your route to work, school, or for recreational purposes. Santa Fe County will continue to closely monitor this sensitive project scheduling and minimize traffic disruptions in this corridor.
