Upgrades coming to oilfield roads in Southeast NM


(Carlsbad Current-Argus) — The New Mexico Department of Transportation is getting closer to providing the safety needed for industry to continue its growth.

A main highway for oilfield traffic between Eddy and Lea counties is being upgraded, and NMDOT expected ongoing improvements to be finished by winter.

The NMDOT invested about $58 million in federal and state funds into the project, which would upgrade 32 miles of U.S. Highway 82 between Artesia and Maljamar.
