ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A road construction project that was supposed to be completed last fall still isn’t finished and it could still be months before it is.

The Department of Transportation says crews will be doing corrective work through the end of next week but final paving may not be done until May.

The contractor in charge of the construction will face a penalty for the delay, but the amount hasn’t been determined yet. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
