Atrisco Vista Boulevard Corridor Study

Project Scope

Bernalillo County has undertaken the Atrisco Vista Boulevard study to evaluate roadway safety improvements three miles from Double Eagle Road north to Paseo del Norte and for extending the roadway six miles from PDN to Southern Boulevard in Sandoval County. The entire corridor will include a multi-use trail. The study considers engineering, environmental, and community factors and will select a preferred alternative. The project team is coordinating with agencies from City of Albuquerque, City of Rio Rancho, and Sandoval County as well as property owners and Petroglyph National Monument.


General Project Information

Project objectives:

  1. Enhance connectivity of the major street network serving southern Rio Rancho and northwest Albuquerque.
  2. Improve access to developing areas and planned development in northwest Albuquerque and southwest Rio Rancho and facilitate and promote orderly growth.
  3. Provide a connected transportation system to better attract additional businesses and jobs to the metropolitan West Side.
  4. Improve safety along the existing section of roadway.


Three roadway alternatives are being evaluated for factors such as roadway length, grades, right-of-way, drainage, soils, cost, land use plans, property acquisition, and natural and cultural resources.
