Palmer 2018

UPDATED VERSION (Added 12/19/2018)

Access has been improved to Nessa’s Café, Able Signs and many of the homes and businesses in the City’s Palmer Subdivision.

Roadway surface work on 2nd Street, from west Picacho Avenue to Brownlee Avenue, is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed by Monday, December 24, 2018.

Major improvements to streets, sidewalks, ADA ramps, utility lines, storm drains and street lighting are being made – and will continue to be made – along 2nd Street, 3rd Street, 4th Street, 6th Street, portions of Brownlee Avenue and Van Patten Avenue, and four alleys. All the enhancements are included in the Palmer Subdivision Reconstruction Project. The project began January 8th and is approximately 50 percent complete. It is estimated the project will be completed next fall.

Ongoing work includes:

  • The raising of manhole and valve concrete collars to proceed with paving operations on 2nd Street.

  • Storm drain main line trunk on Brownlee Avenue, between 2nd Street and 3rd Street.

  • Sanitary sewer main line in the alley between Hadley Avenue and McFie Avenue, from 2nd Street to 3rd Street.

The base contract cost of the project is slightly more than $6.4 million. Project funding is coming from Hold Harmless Gross Receipts Taxes and Utility Revenue Bonds. Smith & Aguirre Construction Company, Inc., of Las Cruces, is the contractor for the project.

Better access to homes and businesses in the neighborhood is because new driveways, sidewalks, ADA ramps will be compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act guidelines, and newly paved roads.

Perhaps, the most significant improvements will be the addition of storm drains. All improvements are expected to enhance the quality of life and safety of visitors, residents, and businesses in the Palmer Subdivision neighborhood.

For information, call the Contracts Administration section of the City’s Public Works Department, at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
