[ARCHIVED] Road Closure for Stanford Street Extended

Lane Closure (1)

A Water Rehab project for Las Cruces Utilities has been under construction from Old Farm Road along the Gillem Lateral to Stanford Street. The new water main will cross Stanford Street and will continue heading east along the Gillem Lateral to Carreon Drive. From Gillem Lateral and Carreon Drive, the new water main will head north to Stern Drive. Improvements will be done on Stern Drive and Yale Drive. The existing water system in Carreon Drive needs replacement and the construction of a new water line along the Gillem Lateral will loop the water system to improve circulation, reliability and to reinforce pressure. 

The current road closure at Stanford Street and the Gillem Lateral will be extended until March 26. Conflicts with utility lines has caused this extension. The detour will be set in place. Motorists wanting to avoid any possible delays should seek an alternative route. Access to surrounding residences will be maintained during the construction. For the public’s convenience, crews will work only Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. leaving the evenings free of construction activity. The road closure will not affect the RoadRUNNER Transit route. 

The City has verified that no conflicting public or private construction projects will take place in that immediate area during this time. The work activity is in City Council District #2. For more information, call the Public Works Department/Construction Management at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
