The $9 million Westside Boulevard Widening Project will widen about 0.85 miles of Westside Boulevard, a major connector between Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, from NM 528 to Golf Course from two to four lanes. It will also provide dedicated left-hand turn lanes at the intersections of Westside Blvd. and Golf Course Road; Westside Blvd. and 7-Bar Loop; Westside Blvd. & Sierrita Road; and Westside Blvd. & Grande Blvd. and make modifications at Westside Blvd. & NM 528. In addition, storm drainage will be improved and pedestrians and bicyclists will have better, safer travel options.

Construction is being coordinated with the City of Rio Rancho and the New Mexico Department of Transportation.
