Valley Drive is open!


The Valley Drive construction project that began July 2, 2018 was scheduled to be substantially complete March 30, 2020. The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) project – Valley Drive is NM Highway 188 – will cost $24 million, about $1 million above the original cost estimate, said NMDOT District One Public Information Officer Ami Evans. The increase was the result of “issues with the base of the roadway” and utilities, Evans said. “NMDOT thanks the citizen of Las Cruces for their continued patience during this important improvement project and for driving carefully in our construction zones.” AUI, Inc. was the project’s principal contractor.
