Construction on this project is planned in three basic phases. Please note that planned activities and traffic impacts for each phase can change without notice, and phases may overlap. 

Phase 1:

The contractor will construct the retaining wall and multi-use path and westbound traffic lanes from Golf Course Rd. to NM 528.

  • Construction of the intersection of Golf Course Road and Westside Blvd. will not occur at the same time as construction of Westside Blvd. and NM 528.
  • Traffic will remain on the existing two lanes and pedestrians can use the existing sidewalk on the south side of Westside Blvd.

Phase 2:

The contractor will construct the eastbound inside lane on Westside Blvd., turn bays, the median and other associated improvements.

  • Grande Blvd. will continue to have right-in/right-out access to and from Westside Blvd.
  • The NM 528 northbound inside left turn bay will be closed.
  • La Sierreta and 7-Bar Loop intersections will remain open, except when construction is occurring on the traffic lanes in those areas.
  • When construction is occurring, the roadways will be restricted to right-in/right-out access.
  • The sidewalk on the south side of Westside Blvd. will remain open.
  • No intersection will be closed for more than 21 calendar days.

Phase 3:

The contractor will construct the eastbound outside lane, turn bays, curb, gutter, sidewalk and other associated improvements.

  • Grande Blvd. will be opened to a left-in/left-out access to Westside Blvd.
  • La Sierreta and 7-Bar Loop intersections will remain open, except when construction is occurring on the traffic lanes in those areas.
  • When construction is occurring at the intersections of La Sierreta and 7-Bar Loop and Westside Blvd., these intersections will be closed.
  • No intersection will be closed for more than 14 calendar days.
  • Construction may only take place at one intersection at a time.
