U.S. Highway 380 closed for 13 hours Thursday

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The New Mexico Department of Transportation is coordinating efforts with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway as maintenance repairs continue along the tracks for a section of U.S. Highway 380.

The NMDOT will close U.S. 380 from the railroad crossing at San Antonio to Carrizozo. There will be no detours for commercial vehicles; only local motorists will have access to the surrounding streets. This closure is scheduled for July 25 from 5 a.m. until 6 p.m.

BNSF encourages motorists to avoid this area until the work zone is lifted as the closure cannot be removed until work is completed.

Updates on road projects and traffic alerts will be posted on NMDOT’s website at www.NMroads.com. Updates can also be retrieved by calling 511 in New Mexico.
