FLOODING FORCES CLOSURE OF COUNTY ROAD D-66

Doña Ana County road crews have closed County Road D-66 near the pavement’s end on Jornada Road near the new school construction site. The roadbed was heavily flooded, and cars were getting stuck. The road will reopen when it’s dried and can be re-graded.

Warning signs and detours will be posted. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes where possible and to slow down and expect delays near the closure areas. Motorists also are reminded to exercise caution in all areas where workers are deployed.
