U.S. 70 construction update

On Monday, construction on U.S. 70 will begin on First Street between Avenue C through F, according to construction project officials. The outside lanes will be closed for this portion of the project and should take two to three weeks.

Pat Garcia with the New Mexico Department of Transportation said the project may move along faster if they don't have to remove the base for the roadway that is already in place.

Garcia said that the base of the streets Portales has now is better than what they use, which gives the streets more structural value.
