Information about Albuquerque Rail Yards Redevelopment.
This project will identify improvements for pedestrians and other users along this busy transit corridor.
Areas of Albuquerque that are thriving have an identity that everyone recognizes. The Nob Hill area and the Downtown area are good examples. Those identities do not just happen. They must be planned and nurtured.
Information about the Girard Boulevard Complete Streets Master Plan.
This project was initiated at the neighborhood’s request for improvements at the park.
Councilor Rey Garduño and the City of Albuquerque Planning Department are undertaking the development of a Sector Development Plan for the area from San Mateo to Wyoming and Lomas to the southern City limits.
Latest Update on Proposed Roundabout at Rio Grande and Candelaria.
Paseo del Volcan is an essential long-range need for our region. Preparing for this road now will encourage good quality, well-planned development for the west side of the region in the future. This will open up the possibility of future employers and in turn address the jobs/housing imbalance and congestion. It’s time to move this project from the back burner to the front burner.
In 2008, a consultant was hired to develop a concept plan for West Central, including short-term and long-term design concepts for a “Complete Street” from 8th St. to Rancho Seco.
The Paseo del Norte and I-25 Interchange improvements have been a high priority for the City of Albuquerque and the Metropolitan Area for many years. Construction began on October 15, 2013 and should take around 18 months to complete. The New Mexico Department of Transportation is overseeing this project. Traffic engineers and consultants will work to ensure that minimal disruption is experienced during the construction period but we all ask for your patience as we move forward with these important improvements.
