A large crowd of Taos residents gathered Wednesday evening (Feb. 26) to hear details about the Paseo del Pueblo project, which is set to begin on March 16.
The meeting started off with remarks by Paul Brasher, New Mexico Department of Transportation District 5 engineer. Brasher introduced other agency representatives involved in the project, including Matthew Villalobos, project superintendent with El Terrero Construction, the contractor undertaking the extensive road improvement project along the main road in Taos.
Villalobos said the project is divided into four phases:
Following the presentation, representatives fielded questions from the audience.
Dominic Martinez, the director of Central Communications for the town of Taos who is responsible for emergency dispatches, voiced concern over communications coordination with the project and access for emergency responders. Brasher agreed to meet with Martinez and town officials to work out details to ensure the project won't create unecessary bottlenecks that might delay emergency response times.
Several business owners also raised concerns that not all details regarding property rights have actually been settled. Brasher agreed to meet to hear more about their concerns after the meeting and was seen having discussions with several people after it drew to a close.
