I-25 at Gibson Boulevard and interchange between Sunport Boulevard and Avenida Cesar Chavez

ALBUQUERQUE – The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is hosting a public meeting for the I-25 Gibson Interchange Reconstruction Project on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at East San Jose Elementary School (415 Thaxton Ave. SE, Albuquerque, NM 87102). The project team is planning improvements to I-25 at the Gibson Boulevard interchange and between Sunport Boulevard and Avenida Cesar Chavez in Albuquerque. The purpose of the project is to update aging infrastructure, enhance safety and improve efficiency for all modes of transportation, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

The proposed design concepts will be presented for a new tight diamond interchange with braided ramps, frontage roads, and improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities. NMDOT invites you to hear from the project team and provide helpful input as the team refines the design.

A presentation and Q&A will be hosted at 5:30 p.m., with an open house format before and after and the project team available to answer questions.

If you cannot attend the in-person meeting, all materials will be posted to the project website www.i25gibson.com on Feb. 23, 2024.
