The two-year project to reconstruct the Paseo Del Norte and I-25 interchange is officially under way. Representatives from The Federal Highway Administration, State of New Mexico, New Mexico Department of Transportation, City of Albuquerque, Bernalillo County and the Mid-Region Council of Governments recently celebrated the beginning of this long-awaited project.
The project partners cooperatively sponsored the ninety-three million dollar budget:
$50 million from the City of Albuquerque,
$29.75 million from the State of New Mexico,
$5 million from Bernalillo County; and
$8.25 million in federal funding.
The Paseo del Norte/I-25 Interchange reconstruction project is designed to address three major needs: to improve safety, to reduce travel time, and to provide better access to jobs in one of New Mexico's busiest transportation corridors.
