DEL REY SECTION TO UNDERGO REPAIRS; BRIDGE REOPENS NEAR MESILLA

A one-mile section of Del Rey Boulevard north of Calle Las Lomas will be closed Jan. 16 – 18 to accommodate repairs to a collapsed culvert. Detours will be posted. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes and to expect delays in the construction area. Motorists also are reminded to exercise caution in areas where workers are deployed.

The Doña Ana County Roads Department has completed repairs to the Mesilla Dam Bridge on County Road B-06 south of Las Cruces. The reconstructed bridge has reopened to traffic. The bridge – located just west of the dam – was closed last September when it appeared to be in imminent danger of failure due to damage from high water flows.
