Road Closures Near NM502 Roundabout Announced Beginning Monday


As part of the NM502 roundabout construction project with the State DOT, Star Paving announced today that they will be closing the following roads on Monday, Nov. 16, until further notice:

  • Canyon Road will be closed between Manhattan Loop and the intersection of NM 502
  • Canyon Road will be closed at the intersection of Manhattan Loop; however, access will be maintained for residents living on Manhattan Loop by using the east entrance to Manhattan Loop

These closures are required to construct the new Canyon Road and Manhattan Loop alignments that are necessary for the project. In the interest of safety to the traveling public, as motorists navigate the opened portions of the roundabout, they are reminded to obey the “YIELD SIGNS” and reduced SPEED LIMITS as they enter the roundabout. Vehicles already in the roundabout have the right-of-way. Star Paving has experienced vehicles travelling in excess of the posted 20 MPH speed limit and motorists not yielding to the vehicles already in the roundabout.
