The City of Rio Rancho invites citizens to attend a public meeting regarding Phase 3 of Southern Boulevard construction. The meeting will take place on February 6, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at the Puesta del Sol Elementary School cafeteria, 450 Southern Blvd SE.
Phase 3 of the Southern Boulevard Restoration Project stretches from Unser Boulevard to Rainbow Boulevard. The project includes construction of new roadway from Rainbow Boulevard to 15th Street, crack sealing and patching from 15th Street to Unser Boulevard, a new right turn lane at the intersection of Baltic Avenue and Southern Boulevard, and new ADA compliant ramps throughout the project limits. This project will improve the safety, accessibility, and overall function of the roadway.
The City will begin construction on February 10, 2020. The duration of the project is approximately four months. The construction cost for this portion of roadway is approximately $2.1 million and is funded by the City of Rio Rancho ($1.2 million), New Mexico Department of Transportation ($760,000), and Sandoval County ($100,000).
