The following is a news release from the the City of Santa Fe.
Patrons of Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe will be rerouted as they drive to the golf course as a result of the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) construction project of a new connector interchange located at NM 599 and County Road (CR) 62 in Santa Fe County.
The cross roads between the frontage roads to NM 599 and County Road 62 will be closed until December 2012. The east and west frontage roads on NM 599 will remain open. Travelers can use County Road (CR) 70 as an alternate route to cross NM 599. CR 70 is 2.3 miles north of CR 62.
There will be lane closures on the northbound and southbound lanes of NM 599 between mile post 6 and mile post 7.
Travelers can expect minor delays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Speed wil be reduced tto 45 mph in the work zone.
During this phase of construction, the contractor will begin building the new on/off ramps. Once the ramps have been completed, NM 599 traffic will be detoured onto the newly built ramps.
Drivers are asked to watch for construction personnel working the area, observe temporary construction signing and reduce speed to the posted speed limits.
NMDOT has worked closely with the public, Santa Fe County and the City of Santa Fe on the project design and planned detour. The new interchange will improve safety for the traveling public by providing an access controlled interchange.
