The New Mexico Department of Transportation District Two will resurface roads in Chaves, Roosevelt, Curry and De Baca counties this spring using chip seal, pothole and asphalt repairs.

The chip seal crew will begin work in Chaves County on U.S. 70 northeast of Roswell. The work also will include some shoulder work and pavement markings.

Additional routes scheduled for chip seal work include N.M. 206, N.M. 267, N.M. 236, N.M. 88, N.M. 202, N.M. 348, N.M. 108, N.M. 523, N.M. 77 and N.M. 224.

Drivers may encounter flaggers where work is being performed, as well as brief, intermittent lane closures. The New Mexico Department of Transportation District Two wants to remind motorists to drive safely through work zones.

Over 200 miles of resurfacing work will take place at an approximate cost of $3.5 million.
