7. I-25, Tramway to Bernalillo
PROJECT COST: $28.4 Million
Spanning from the Tramway Interchange up to N.M. 473 in Bernalillo, this roadway reconstruction and widening project on Interstate 25 will expand the roadway to six lanes (three in each direction) and will also include a drainage structure extension, concrete box culvert underpass in Sandia Pueblo connecting the pueblo with the Sandia Casino and full replacement of the Sandia Wash Bridge.
With daily traffic flow estimated at 64,300 cars, the project is phased so that two lanes northbound and two lanes southbound will be preserved for a majority of the construction, with temporary lane closures kept to a minimum.
