New Mexico Department of Transportation – NM 136 Pete Domenici International Highway Concrete Overlay Project

New Mexico 136 provides direct access to an area of the state that offers great potential for economic development, yet the pavement along this nine-mile corridor had reached its end of life and required significant upgrades – especially with the growing truck volume. The New Mexico DOT utilized a Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement overlay instead of a full reconstruction, which eliminated the removal and disposal of existing surface material and required a thinner overlay. This saved more than $20 million in reconstruction costs and provided a long-term solution for the next 30 years, keeping the economy moving and drivers safe.
