TAOS, NM — The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) and El Terrero Construction, LLC, reached an agreement to suspend reconstruction work on U.S. 68/N.M. 64 for a two-week duration amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Suspension began Monday and will expire April 3. Work will begin again Monday, April 6.
This suspension is granted due to specification 107.20 that includes documented national unavailability of construction material and epidemic quarantine restriction. This is not intended for the contractor to restructure phasing.
The $23.9 million project will improve the road through the heart of Taos. The project will reduce congestion, correct physical and geometric deficiencies and add new ADA compliant ramps and sidewalks.
Traffic advisories and updates will be posted on the www.nmroads.com website.
