NMDOT to spend millions on Melrose Bombing Range intersection improvements

CLOVIS, NM (KFDA) - The New Mexico Department of Transportation will be investing $4.5 million to improve the entrance of the Melrose Training Range at Cannon Air Force Base.

Construction for the Melrose Training Range entrance includes the addition of a left turn bay for westbound traffic on US 60/84 as well as an acceleration lane for northbound Roosevelt Road.

NMDOT said the new intersection and lanes will improve safety along the US 60/84 corridor.

During construction, there will be intermittent single-lane closures.
