The current road closure at the intersection of Calle del Ranchero and Cortez Drive has been extended and is anticipated to be in effect until July 30, 2021, depending on weather conditions. A detour will be set in place.
The utility and road work will be done by Smith and Aguirre Construction Company, Inc. as part of the Las Cruces Utilities Hacienda Acres, Phase II Sewer Improvement project.
Motorists wanting to avoid any possible delays should seek an alternative route. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained during the construction.
For the public’s convenience, crews will work only Monday through Friday from 7 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 No. 6.
