Resurfacing Work Planned Along U.S. 285 North of Roswell

WORK ON A MAJOR REHABILITATION PROJECT ALONG PART OF U.S. 285 IN CHAVES COUNTY BEGINS TODAY. DARRELL MOODY HAS THE DETAILS…

THE NEW MEXICO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION IS RESURFACING 11 MILES OF US 285 SOUTHBOUND NORTH OF ROSWELL. CREWS WILL BE WORKING BETWEEN MILE MARKERS 120 AND 131. THE SPEED LIMIT IN THE AFFECTED AREA IS REDUCED TO 50 MILES PER HOUR. MESSAGE BOARDS ARE IN PLACE TO ALERT DRIVERS. LAW ENFORCEMENT COULD ALSO BE INCREASED IN THE WORK ZONE TO ENSURE THE CREW’S SAFETY. WE’RE TOLD A SINGLE LANE CLOSURE WILL BE NECESSARY WHILE THE WORK IS BEING DONE. WEATHER PERMITTING, THE PROJECT SHOULD BE DONE BY THIS WINTER.
