PROJECT
OVERVIEW

Bridge Boulevard holds historic significance within the South Valley community as the first constructed crossing over the Rio Grande and as part of the original Historic Route 66. Bridge Boulevard is now one of eight river crossings in the Albuquerque area, but more importantly, it is only one of two river crossings providing access to Albuquerque’s South Valley. Bridge Boulevard and Rio Bravo Boulevard are the only two access points to cross over the Rio Grande within the South Valley boundaries.

 

Bernalillo County, in coordination with the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), is working to improve safety and alleviate congestion by redesigning Bridge Boulevard.

We need to hear from you! 

To preserve and celebrate the heritage and authenticity of the South Valley, the County is finding transportation solutions that connect and support the community.

The County is improving this corridor in four phases: Phase One has been constructed, Phase Two will be constructed in 2023, Phase Three (the Bridging Los Vecinos project) is in the study phase, and Phase Four will follow.

CURRENT PHASE:

WE ARE ON PHASE THREE

Phase Three, the Bridging Los Vecinos project, is currently in the study phase, with design scheduled for 2024 and construction anticipated to begin in 2026. The Bridging Los Vecinos project area is just under 1 mile of Bridge Boulevard, between Lura Place and Young Avenue. Within the project area, there are two major intersections. The first is the Five Points intersection, where the team will work with local residents and stakeholders to develop design alternatives before selecting a preferred intersection design. The second is the Bridge Boulevard and Goff Boulevard intersection. Goff Boulevard leads to Isleta Boulevard, an original part of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro National Historic Trail.
