What is the project area?

NMDOT is evaluating potential transportation improvements to the I-25 corridor between Comanche Road and Montgomery Boulevard in Albuquerque, including the freeway, frontage roads and interchanges.

What transportation improvements will be made?

While design will be ongoing through early 2023, the project team has identified that improvements will be made to the I-25 corridor between Comanche Road and Montogomery Boulevard, including the freeway, frontage roads and interchanges.

When can I provide public input?

What is a design-build project?

During a design-build process, NMDOT selects and hires a team to design and build the project simultaneously. The design-build selection process fosters the most innovative and cutting-edge construction solutions while delivering a quality product for the best value. For this project, the Preferred Alternative for the interchanges identified in the 2011 and 2016 Phase IB studies will be developed to a conceptual level and then advertised for a competitive bid process to select a design-build team to complete the design and construction of the project.

When does construction start?

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2023.

How did we get here?

The I-25 Improved; Comanche to Montgomery project is building upon past studies in the Albuquerque area. In 2011, the Phase IB Alternatives Analysis Study was conducted to document existing and future deficiencies within the North I-25 corridor and to evaluate and refine possible alternatives to address the identified needs. The North I-25 corridor extends north of Interstate 40 (I-40) to Tramway Road interchange in Albuquerque. In 2016, the Supplemental Phase IB Study was updated to reflect the Mid Region Council of Governments' (MRCOG's) 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) as well as completed projects. A Preferred Alternative was selected in this study. To learn more about these efforts, please click the Previous Studies tab.
