New Mexico DOT District 2 Celebrates Completion of U.S. 54/70 Corridor Improvements

ALAMOGORDO, NM — The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) District Two announces the completion of the U.S. 54/70 corridor construction project between Tularosa and Alamogordo in Otero County.

“The NMDOT is committed to investing in transportation projects that improve mobility and helps resident’s access jobs, education and other opportunities,” said Transportation Secretary Michael Sandoval. “Improvements to this highway provide safer, more efficient travel for thousands of residents, tourists and also support economic development in the area.”

The U.S. 54/70 corridor is a major arterial highway that connects communities, economic development and tourists directly to the heart of Otero County, Village of Tularosa and the City of Alamogordo. Improvements along the corridor included a mill and overlay of the existing roadway, new shoulders, widening for new turn lanes at key intersections and new medians.

“The dstrict is really proud that this project came in on time and on budget,” said District Two Construction Engineer Alan Briley. “This is a credit to our construction team, contractor and the Otero County community.”

This $32-million project took two years to complete.
