With over 500 roads in the county that need to be paved, the County's Capital Improvement Project (CIP) Department has its hands full prioritizing which ones get completed first with limited dollars. Truth is, the County Road Maintenance Department would love to see all of them paved, because once a road is paved, the maintenance of that road requires far less time and costs far less money than maintenance of a gravel road.
In order to manage all of the requests for road paving (as well as other projects) the County created a Capital Improvement Project request form. County residents can request a hard copy of the form at (505) 468-1350 or visit the County’s CIP website here and fill it out electronically.
Here's a tip: It’s really important to get as many of your neighbors as possible to submit requests as well, so the CIP Department knows there is support for the project. They’ll rank your road’s priority based on several factors, including number of households served, percentage of residents requesting the paving, number of work orders for the road, whether it is a school bus route, and so on.
If you have any questions about the process, you are always welcome to contact the CIP Department at (505) 468-1350 or the District 5 office at (505) 468-7212.
