The New Mexico Department of Transportation is overseeing this project.

Key Improvements

The Paseo del Norte / I-25 Interchange project will include six main improvements:

  1. A free-flow ramp to improve the eastbound-to-southbound traffic movement in the morning during peak travel time;
  2. A flyover ramp to improve the northbound-to-westbound traffic movement in the afternoon during peak travel time;
  3. Reconfigure the Jefferson Street and Paseo del Norte intersection to improve east-west traffic flow while maintaining local access;
  4. Bicycle and pedestrian improvements to provide a critical bike system link across I-25 and to connect existing paths to the area;caption:Paseo del Norte and I25 construction project computer simulation
