The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is conducting a highway corridor study on I-40 from the Arizona State Line to the Atrisco Vista Interchange in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The study covers 150-miles of I-40 and adjacent frontage roads and alternate routes located from milepost 0.0 to 150.0. The purpose of the I-40 Corridor Study is to identify corridor needs, develop and evaluate alternatives, and create a long-term improvement plan to address operations and safety for this section of I-40. The study includes:

  • Data collection and analysis to understand where and why improvements are needed and what factors and existing conditions are contributing to safety and operational challenges.
  • Developing and evaluating alternatives to meet corridor needs and future traffic demands.
  • Developing a highway improvement plan to prioritize improvements and streamline project planning, design, and construction.
