Project Overview

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT)

is planning transportation improvements to I-25 at the Gibson Boulevard interchange and between Sunport Boulevard and Avenida Cesar Chavez as part of the I-25 Gibson Interchange Reconstruction Project.

The improvements will enhance safety and improve efficiency for all modes of transportation, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. The project is also replacing aging infrastructure. This area was studied previously in 2014 and 2016 as part of wider I-25 corridor studies – click here for Details to learn more.

The Preferred Alternative that came from the 2016 study included: 

  • A new I-25 bridge over Gibson Boulevard, including a new interchange design.
  • Minor enhancements to Gibson Boulevard between Edith Boulevard and University Boulevard.
  • Additional lanes and frontage road improvements along I-25 between Sunport Boulevard and Avenida Cesar Chavez.
  • Improvements to bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

The project team will be conducting the environmental review and documentation process phase (Phase 1C), and will begin development of a preliminary or 30% design (Phase 1D) of the Preferred Alternative through summer 2025. The project will then be advertised to aDesign-Builder aiming to finalize a contract in 2026 with construction beginning in 2027.

The NMDOT strives to strike a balance between transportation improvements and community needs and values.
