Road construction slated for 20th Street in Farmington
October 22, 2018 08:02 PM
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— Downtown Farmington is getting an upgrade.
In addition to construction on Main Street, 20th Street will also get much-needed improvements.
“It makes it much more pedestrian friendly,” said Farmington city engineer Nica Westerling.
In March, the city will widen the sidewalks along the road between Sullivan Avenue and Dustin Avenue.
The city will also be burying electric lines.
It will cost the city about $900,000 to complete the work.
Similar to business owners on Main Street, some stores along 20th Street are concerned about the impact the work will have on them.
"It's not the best timing for us. Sure it will make things difficult for our customers to maybe get in here, but we also understand that, you know, making sure that we keep up with the infrastructure of Farmington is important,” said Donnie Pigford, owner of San Juan Nurseries.
Anyone with questions about the project is encouraged to attend the public meeting that will be held Thursday at Farmington City Hall at 5:30 p.m.
