The City of Las Cruces is moving forward on its Mesilla Drain Trail as part of the General Obligation (GO) Bonds Project approved by voters in 2018. Voters approved up to $2,700,000 in funding to construct and improve recreational walking, jogging, and biking trails (acquiring land if necessary). Work on the the Mesilla Drain Trail project will begin Friday, April 2.
The current project work will start at the intersection of the existing trail, northwest of Mayfield High School (near Isaacks Lane) and work south creating the new trail.
The work may interfere with both trail users and motorists in the area, calling for intermittent lane closures on Isaacks Lane for the next several weeks.
The Mesilla Drain Trail will take approximately four months to complete, the entire GO Bond Trails Project should be complete by mid-August of 2022.
The construction of this trail is taking place in City Council District #4.
