RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Let’s face it, Rio Rancho, 2019 has arguably been one of the best in city history.
But, hey, we set the proverbial bar pretty high in 2019, and we need to keep a positive attitude that 2020 can be even better. No promises — there are municipal elections in March, the primary in June and a presidential election coming up in November!
For one thing, Southern Boulevard’s Phase 1 construction is a thing of the past, and motorists, business owners and area residents are happy about that, even though the project lasted three months longer than originally anticipated.
We’d like to be able to forecast that the headache known as the US 550 project in Bernalillo and affecting countless Rio Ranchoans daily will be completed, but we can’t: It’s targeted to be completed in 2021.
