BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – Several road construction projects are moving ahead for Bernalillo County.

But they’re asking its residents to be vigilant and find alternate routes.

Over the next year traffic will drastically be reduced.

The $70 million project is expected to last over the next five years, with the county using nearly $19 million of that to make changes over the next 13 to 14 months.

Several changes include; draining and road improvements along Isleta and Rio Bravo.

The county wants to ensure better roads so issues like last weeks South Valley flooding doesn’t washout its residents.

Thursday, county officials are asking those to be patient.
