There's really not anywhere we can go, anymore, without having to deal with the orange barrel mayhem.

El Paso roadways have been a construction nightmare forever it seems. (I'm trying to find out how I can get the literal translation of El Paso changed to "under construction". Anyone know who I should call??) On top of the I-10 mess, TxDoT has begun the process of jacking up Trans Mountain.

Las Cruces has had their share of road construction woes as well and they too are about to worsen. Work there will begin in January on I-25 near New Mexico State University. A series of meetings about the project begins tonight, (12/5), at 6pm. Tonight's meeting is being held at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, which is located at 41000 Dripping Springs Road.
