[ARCHIVED] U.S. Highway 70 Fog Sealing begins in Las Cruces

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) District One began fog sealing operations Wednesday, February 3 on U.S. Highway 70 from Las Cruces toward Alamogordo.

Drivers can expect lane closures beginning at milepost 166, past Organ, on the eastbound lanes to the end of District One Maintenance at milepost 177. Once the eastbound lanes have been completed, crews will begin moving to the westbound lanes. One lane of traffic will remain open, off and on ramps will close temporarily. Speed limits will be reduced.

Fog sealing is a single application of emulsified asphalt to an existing asphalt surface. This type of maintenance treatment can be a valuable aid to renew weathered (oxidized) asphalt surfaces and improve the surface appearance, seal minor cracks, surface voids, and inhibit unraveling. Most importantly, fog sealing helps preserve the underlying pavement structure allowing the roadway to last for many years to come.

The New Mexico Department of Transportation is committed to the safety of the traveling public and appreciates motorists’ cooperation during this work. For the latest road information visit: The New Mexico Department of Transportation at or call 511.
