RIO RANCHO – Work on the Northern Blvd. corridor is in final design stage and state and local officials have set an online public meeting for information.

The meeting will be Thursday, Sept. 29, according to a press statement.

The meeting will be hosted by the City of Rio Rancho, in cooperation with the New Mexico Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.

The project is in the final design phase.

The purpose of the Northern Boulevard Expansion Phase B Project (Acal Place to Broadmoor Blvd.) is to accommodate future traffic demands, improve safety, provide multi-modal travel options, and correct physical deficiencies, the statement said. This will be accomplished by implementing an expansion of the roadway to four-driving lanes; access improvements; multi-modal infrastructure with accessible routes and connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists; and water, sanitary sewer and drainage infrastructure improvements.
