CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN FOR ROUTE 66 VISITOR CENTER

Route 66 Visitor Center RenderingEnterprise Builders Corporation is the selected construction company to build the Route 66 Visitors Center west of Albuquerque near I-40 and Atrisco Vista Boulevard.

Tonight, the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners authorized the county manager to execute and approve the construction agreement with Enterprise Builders in the amount of $9.6 million. Enterprise Builders was the lowest responsive bidder.

The Route 66 Visitors Center is a collaborative effort between Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque and local stakeholders, SWAN (Southwest Alliance of Neighbors) and the West Central Community Development Group, to create a space that celebrates Route 66 while serving the local community.

Current funding for this project will allow the first phase of construction to begin in February. Phase one includes a 21,000 square foot museum, assembly space, catering kitchen, tap room, office space, outdoor amphitheater, parking and landscaping.  

“The Route 66 Visitor Center is a project that has been 29 years in the making,” said Commission Vice Chair Steven Michael Quezada. “I’m so glad to see the construction getting ready to start on this long-awaited community-led project on the Southwest Mesa.”  

In 2019, the County Commission chose West Central Community Development Group as operator/management services for the proposed Route 66 Visitors Center.

The West Central Community Development Group is working on an exhibit masterplan for the building to include museum quality artwork that will support the mission of education and outreach.

The West Central Community Development Group will also work on long-term plans for capital improvements, fundraising, programming for youth, developing community partnerships, and designing a sustainable framework for managing the property.

The County Commission acknowledged the construction agreement with Enterprise Builders on a 5-0 vote.
