Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead The operational improvements include 2 sets of passing lanes varying in length from 1.4 to 2.1 miles; new left-turn pockets at 4 intersections: Tularosa Rd., Hapgood Rd (west), Campbell Rd., and Drum Canyon/Mail Rd., which requires widening Santa Rosa Creek bridge by 12 ft; a 2 way continuous left-turn lane extending west from Hapgood Rd. to 3800 ft west of Campbell Rd; a realigned highway toward the southward direction at Tularosa Rd. and lowering of the profile. This will reduce uphill grades near Tularosa and improve sight distance.
