FARMINGTON — The New Mexico Department of Transportation will be working on U.S. Highway 64 on the west side of Farmington from April 1 to August.

The roadway being rehabilitated extends from La Plata Highway to Troy King Road, a length of just over a mile.

The project will be undertaken by contractor Four Corners Materials and will consist of roadway rehabilitation, cold milling, a new curb and gutter, permanent signs and striping and traffic control measures.

Work hours will be Monday through Friday from 30 minutes after sunrise to 30 minutes before sunset. Some night work is anticipated to minimize traffic delays.

The Department of Transportation urges motorists to proceed through the area with caution, observe traffic control signs and reduce speed to posted limits.
