I-25/GIBSON RAMP CLOSED: The New Mexico Department of Transportation spent the weekend working on northbound Interstate 25 at the Gibson interchange, according to a news release. This week, the ramp from I-25 southbound to Gibson eastbound will be closed. Crews are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Drivers can expect similar restrictions through Jan. 31, with crews doing bridge maintenance from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. on weekends and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays.
NMDOT’s Kimberly Gallegos advises drivers who want to avoid the construction to “take University to Avenida Cesar Chavez as a detour. Variable message boards will be in place, and updates will be made to NMroads.com.”
EASTBOUND RIO BRAVO BRIDGE CLOSING: Jeanne Wyche says via email she takes Rio Bravo to get to work and “since the week before Christmas, the right lane has been closed on Rio Bravo, through the intersection with Isleta. There were no notices that this would happen, and there has been no activity since the lane was closed. This has caused major traffic snafus for those of us who have to go eastbound on Rio Bravo. Can you tell me what is going on?”
