NMDOT is planning to improve the intersection at White Sands Blvd & Indian Wells Rd. by realigning the intersection, upgrade traffic signals, and sidewalks to meet the American with Disability Act Standards Act. This project will improve ingress and egress configurations to local businesses in the area as well. This is a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) project.
The work is expected to start in February 2021. Additional notice and information will be sent out from the NMDOT closer to the start of the project. Once the project begins it will be added to the NMDOT District 2 project webpage at https://dot.state.nm.us/content/nmdot/en/ProjectsD2.html.
This is a major project in a busy intersection and will have to be accomplished in phases so that the entire intersection is not closed down, which in turn increases the time that it will take to complete.
