NM Highway 50 Bridge No. 397 Replacement Project on the Glorieta Battlefield National Historic Landmark, CN 5101290:

View all


Additional proposed improvements include new approach pavement and roadside barrier.  This structure is a 23-foot long single span cast-in-place concrete bridge built in 1923 and widened in the 1980s.  The bridge is in need of replacement due to age, poor condition, and low load ratings.  Several bridge alternatives were evaluated.  The selected bridge alternative will involve replacement on the existing alignment, leaving the existing concrete abutments with drilled shafts set behind, placement of a single span, pre-cast concrete slab bridge, and closure of the roadway during demolition and construction.  Bridge Demolition and Construction will require FULL ROADWAY CLOSURE for 7 Weeks.  An 18-mile DETOUR ROUTE from Bridge 397 to the Glorieta/I-25 interchange would utilize NM 50, NM 63, and the Rowe/I-25 interchange. The entire project is within the boundaries of the Glorieta Pass Battlefield National Historic Landmark.
