McMillen Jacobs’ construction crew completed a major milestone this week, placing the first bridge deck on the NM-152 project, in New Mexico’s Sierra County.
This is one of two bridges for the Federal Highway Administration’s NW 152 Bridges Replacement project. The bridges are located on NM 152 between Hillsboro and Kingston. NM 152 is a major collector that connects Interstate 25 to US 180. The route traverses the Gila National Forest.
The project will increase safety by replacing single‐lane bridges with two‐lane bridges, thereby providing more reliable emergency and maintenance vehicle access, in comparison to the current bridges which are restricted by width and height limitations.
The bridges are scheduled to be completed in August 2021.
