ALTERNATE ROUTE OPENED FOR TALAVEREA RESIDENTS

Geothermal Drive has been opened east to Dripping Springs Road as an alternate route for residents seeking access to the Talavera area. Dripping Springs Road has been closed since before noon while significant water run-off makes its way to a large retention area east of the NMSU Golf Course.

Traffic along Geothermal Drive should be slow and cautious until Dripping Springs Road is re-opened. There is no timetable for re-opening of Dripping Springs Road. All traffic east- and westbound will be diverted to Geothermal Drive until further notice.

Geothermal Drive can be accessed off of Las Alturas Boulevard just south of the NMSU Golf Course. The newly opened extension will carry traffic of all types along a dirt grade to East Dripping Springs Road.
