The District One office for the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) with La Calerita Construction has moved the date for the placement of the beams due to weather conditions.
Heavy rain has caused a delay in the delivery of the beams which has been rescheduled from Friday December 20th to Saturday December 21st. The Contractor has modified the work schedule to have the beams placed during overnight hours on Saturday December 21st at 6:00 pm and will have all lanes open on Avenida de Mesilla by 5:00 am on Sunday December 22nd.
The closure will remain as planned from Hickory Loop to Lakeside Drive; motorists will be advised of seek an alternate. Traffic alerts are posted throughout the work zone advising motorists of detours at Motel Boulevard exit 139, or University Avenue exit 142 for both east and westbound I-10 traffic.
