SANTA FE (KRQE) – Road construction began Monday morning for a new state of the art interchange at I25 and Cerrillos.
It is called the “diverging diamond” and is the first of its kind in New Mexico. The interchange is designed to improve safety and traffic flow. Constructed with fewer conflict points, the number and severity of crashes are expected to reduce.
The new interchange will cost nearly $20 million.
It is scheduled to be finished in late 2016.
