TAOS, N.M. - A stretch of highway that has been the cause of traffic headaches in part of northern New Mexico, is finally back open.
Taos Project Update: Crews cleaned and dried the pipeline over the weekend. Highway 68 is fully reopened. Later this week we will do the tie in.— New Mexico Gas Co. (@nmgasco) March 12, 2018
Highway 68 has been closed for months as crews worked on the construction of a new pipeline near Taos. The project was originally estimated to be completed in November but was delayed.
The Taos pipeline project included the replacement of an existing pipeline between Rinconada and Pilar to provide natural gas for Taos, Questa, Red River and other areas.
