12th Street and Menaul Great Streets Improvements

The City of Albuquerque Department of Municipal Development (DMD) is advancing the 12th Street and Menaul Great Streets Improvements Project which will evaluate alternatives and prepare design plans for multimodal transportation and corridor enhancements to 12th Street, Menaul Boulevard, and Menaul Extension.  Alternative configurations are being considered for the 12th Street and Menaul Boulevard intersection including upgrades to the existing traffic signal control or reconstruction as a multi-lane modern roundabout. 

A critical component of this project is coordination with stakeholders including the surrounding neighborhoods, Indian Pueblos Marketing, Inc. (IPMI), and other users.  The purpose of this website is to disseminate the materials developed for the engineering study and to inform the public of project events that were held or are going to be held in the near future. 

The study limits include 12th Street from the I-40 westbound frontage road to north of Menaul Boulevard and Menaul Boulevard from west of 12th Street to Los Tomases Drive.  Corridor improvements may include but are not limited to traffic signal design, roundabout design, median improvements, bike lanes, signing and striping, transit stops, landscape and other street enhancements. 


The schedule for the project is not established.  Additional funding for the improvements is needed.  Design plans for the construction of improvements are expected to be complete near the end of 2014 or in early 2015.  Property acquisitions are expected to require additional time.
