The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) District One will begin Fog Sealing on Interstate 10, from milepost 116 toward Las Cruces.
Starting Monday, Jan. 3, 2022, motorists on I-10 can expect lane closures beginning at milepost 116, New Mexico Highway 549, to milepost 139, Motel Boulevard/New Mexico Highway 292. Once the eastbound lanes have been completed, NMDOT crews will move 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 www.nmroads.com or call 511.
