Active Projects & Public Involvement Opportunities

The NMDOT works on hundreds of projects across the state.  The interactive mapping application below contains information about projects that are in various stages of development, including the study scoping, design, and construction phases.  By selecting a project in the directory or by location on the map, you can learn more details about a project underway in your community.

The NMDOT offers many opportunities for citizens to learn about and to share comments on transportation projects and issues. For details on a particular meeting, please contact the NMDOT District Office nearest the location or visit the Public Involvement Calendar.

The Department of Transportation is soliciting applications for Planning Funds to be used along the I-10 and I-40 corridors. Click here for more info!
