Road crews are working diligently to complete the NM 528 widening project, and here they’re on the portion of the highway near Quantum Road. The state transportation department reported that southbound traffic can turn onto Quantum, but northbound traffic turning west there will have to wait until mid-December. The project is still on schedule and budget, with crew completing the placement of concrete sidewalk, ADA curb ramps, retaining walls, cut off walls, header walls, slope paving and drop inlets. When the project is completed next month, northbound NM 528 will have two lanes available to turn west on Sundt Road. (Gary Herron/Observer)
