Bama Belle, #6673

So......How's the highway construction going?

Recommended Posts

Well, since TomTom doesn't live in my FordFord, gotta rely on you local folks!

 

What's the latest on the highway construction for those of us staying in ABQ?

 

Any adequate alternate routes?

Thanks HtD

That's great information. I'll try that next Monday morning.

Saturday morning I-40 eastbound was moving faster than US333 (Old 66) before Zuzax and then the same speed from Zuzax to Sedillo. I'll take Old 66 because there's no truck traffic and in case of an accident there's shoulders where you can get around a wreck. A wreck on I-40 can delay you hours.

 

The exit on eastbound I-40 to Zuzax is closed. The westbound on-ramp to I-40 from Sedillo is closed.

Belle,

 

We drove straight across I-40 from Ft Smith Arkansas. No issues really. A bit of construction but not enough to warrant taking a different route.

 

Good luck shooting.

Blue,Belle was referrin' to the construction in Tijeras Canyon,west of Sedillo Hill.

 

And a little warnin' about gettin' to Smith's,McD's,Walgreens,Edgewood in general: It's a durned mess,they've screwed it up so badly they're havin' to make changes as they go along.The "frontage road" they're puttin' in on the north side of 66 is gonna be a nightmare,the reason they did that is 'cause they cut off access to several businesses from 66,then decided to put it in after some pretty loud complaints.

 

I got $10 says they'll be back in no more than 3 years to fix what they screwed up.

I got a verbal reprimand today for doing 50 in a 45 zone through the construction on I-40. Tomorrow I'm back on NM 333 where I can travel 55 mph.
