N. Main/US 70 Las Cruces
    The NMDOT with G. Sandoval Construction have traffic control devices and concrete wall barriers along US 70 from Chestnut to the Madrid Street interchange. Motorists will encounter one lane restrictions for both east and westbound traffic, which is limited to 10 feet within the work zone. The contractor continues work along the median and on the inner lanes; speed limit is posted at 35 MPH.
    Businesses along the corridor are open; please contact them for their hours of operation. Motorists may need to seek an alternate route, or make adjustments as their daily commute as travel time may increase due to heavy traffic on N. Main and other adjacent streets. Should an incident occur within the work zone and is not considered life threatening. Law enforcement is asking drivers to move their vehicles off onto a side road, or parking lot so that they can assess the situation in a controlled environment.
