Bidding to begin soon on Spaceport America road

Spaceport America

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Companies will soon be bidding on a project to improve a major road leading to Spaceport America.

Contractors will bid on building the first two phases of the 24 mile road. But Dona Ana County said the timing on when construction would start depends on the Bureau of Land Management.

The BLM is reviewing construction plans.

Supporters of the Spaceport say a paved road is crucial for county residents and businesses to benefit from the spaceport.

Bidding could begin in two weeks. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
