PROJECT OVERVIEW

The purpose of the project is to realign the 20th and G St. intersection with a street leading to the new National Nuclear Security Administration Albuquerque Complex and address security concerns at the Eubank Gate.

Construction will start in the fall of 2019. The project will impact employees who access the base via the Eubank Gate.

Impacts to commuters are not anticipated until after the first of the year. Impacts may include reconfigured inbound and outbound lanes, road construction delays, and possibly gate closure if necessary.

Construction updates may be shared among multiple platforms like this website, the Kirtland Air Force Base App, and email. People can download the free Kirtland Air Force Base App to receive notifications via smart phones at the Apple Store and Google Play Store.
