Project Complete!

On December 15, 2014, Mayor Richard Berry joined Governor Susana Martinez and local, state, and federal officials to officially open the brand new Paseo Del Norte/Interstate 25 interchange, including the two-lane flyover ramp that connects northbound I-25 travelers with westbound Paseo Del Norte. The $93 million project was a joint effort between local, state, and federal agencies and was completed on time and on budget.

The Paseo/ I-25 Interchange reconstruction project will reduce traffic congestion and improve safety and air quality in one of New Mexico's busiest transportation corridors.

The project features six major improvements:

  1. A two-lane free-flow ramp to improve the eastbound-to-southbound traffic movement  in the morning peak travel time (7:00-9:00 a.m.)
  2. A two-lane flyover ramp to improve the northbound-to-westbound traffic movement in  the evening peak travel time (4:30-6:30 p.m.)
  3. A reconfiguration of 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 link across I-25  and to connect existing paths in the area
  5. Freeway access improvements for traffic originating from the area east of the Paseo Del  Norte/I-25 interchange
  6. I-25 mainline improvements between the Alameda Boulevard and Jefferson Street  Interchanges for safety and traffic flow
