Crews plan to be out over the next six months, working on the intersection that is used by thousands to access Albuquerque Uptown and Coronado Center. The $4.9 million project is scheduled to last through May with various lane and road shoulder closures.

Phase 1 starts Wednesday evening. No full closures of any on or off ramps are expected during this phase, with work primarily being completed overnight starting at 9 p.m. and lasting until 5 a.m. the next day.

During the first phase, drivers can expect the right shoulder to be closed and both inside lanes of the westbound off-ramp to be closed.

The project is for improvements including ADA compliance, bridge reinforcement, updated signage and a new concrete wall barrier.
