LAS CRUCES – Update: The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) and A.S. Horner continue work on the I-10/ I-25 System Interchange, with detours advising motorists of lane restrictions and detours.

There will be one (1) FULL overnight closure on I-25 for Tuesday December 4th from 9:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m.. Please use detours as posted throughout the project.

The NMDOT has the following alerts for this project, and encourage motorists to exercise caution through the construction zone due to speed reductions, width restrictions, heavy equipment, and construction personnel within the work area.

  • I-25 Southbound (SB) & I-25 Northbound (NB): Traffic is reduced to one-lane in each direction.  Speed limit is reduced to 45 MPH. Traffic will be switching lanes periodically throughout this phase for reconstruction of the driving lanes on I-25 NB and SB.
  • I-10 Eastbound (EB) & Westbound (WB):  Traffic is reduced to one-lane in each direction.  Traffic has been switched to the newly constructed eastbound lanes. Speed limit is reduced to 45 MPH.
