Notice – Beginning Monday, May 22, 2023, the Contractor for Santa Fe County Public Works Department (SFCPWD) will begin construction of the roundabout at the Richards Avenue and Avenida Del Sur intersection. To safely accommodate the construction, it will be necessary to close a segment of Richards Avenue and Avenida del Sur.

SFCPWD will provide detour and business access signage identifying alternative routes around the closures.
Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists are advised to seek alternate routes and urged to allow additional time to accommodate the detours.

Santa Fe County to Host Virtual Town-Hall on Northeast and Southeast Connectors Roads Project
SANTA FE, NM- Santa Fe County will be hosting a virtual public meeting on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. to give an update on the progress of the Northeast and Southeast Connectors Roads Project. In response to numerous constituent inquiries regarding the development of the project, County Commissioner Hughes, District 5, has arranged and will moderate the respective public meeting.
After twenty years of planning and implementation, the County began construction of the Northeast/Southeast Connector Road(s) Project (NE/SE Connector) after a celebratory ground-breaking ceremony on January 23, 2023. The NE/SE Connector is comprised of 3 new roadway segments contributing 3.88 miles of new multimodal infrastructure within the Santa Fe Community College District. The project is the County’s proactive strategy to alleviate the anticipated population growth in the area by providing alternative travel choices. The NE/SE Connector roads will improve the connectivity through the Community College area, will reduce traffic along Richards Avenue, and provide road options in the region that doesn’t exist currently.
The meeting will feature Santa Fe County Public Works Director, Brian Snyder and Engineering Services Manager, Ivan Trujillo who will discuss the construction schedule, route impacts, trail closures, and the extension of Avenida del Sur. Staff will be accompanied by Matthew Nighbert, Transportation Technical Sector Director with Souder, Miller & Associates who is the design engineer for the project.
