Bernalillo County, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and U.S. Department of Transportation, is working on a draft redevelopment plan for the Bridge Boulevard corridor from Coors Boulevard to the Barelas Bridge. The Bridge Boulevard Corridor Redevelopment Plan will identify appropriate improvements and areas for development to transform Bridge Boulevard into a mixed-use, pedestrian- and transit-friendly corridor that honors and maintains the unique history and character of the South Valley community.
A community meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 20 at the South Valley Multi-Purpose Center located at 2008 Larrazolo SW. There will be an open house at 5:30 p.m. with a formal presentation beginning at 5:45 p.m. The project team will be available before and after the presentation to answer any questions.
In October of 2010, the Bernalillo County Public Works Division and the U.S. Department of Transportation were awarded a $500,000 grant from HUD., to prepare the corridor redevelopment plan. The county has matched the grant funds with $380,000.
