Southern Tier section 2 map 29 highway closure August 2017
« on: August 03, 2017, 04:16:24 pm »
NM Highway 152 over Emory Pass is closed from mile post 22 to mile post 40 due to heavy flooding and debris on the roadway. Traffic must seek an alternate route. Update on August 3: due to continued rainfall, the roadway will remain closed until further notice.

Please check here for further updates: http://nmroads.com/mapIndex_2017041401.html?

Detour eastbound: From Silver City, ride southeast on US 180. The shoulder is rough but rideable with caution. When you reach Deming ride east on I-10. Bicycles should exit I-10 west of Las Cruces at the Correlitos Exit #127 then ride on the north side frontage road. From the frontage road turn left onto Picacho Blvd./US 70, then turn right into N. Fairaces to SR 28 or right onto Motel Blvd to SR 28 to rejoin the route.

Detour westbound: In Las Cruces, from Picacho Blvd./US 70 turn right onto Frontage Road (just before US 70 merges with I-10) and enter I-10 shoulder at Exit 127. Ride west on I-10 until you reach Deming. Ride northwest on US 180 until you reach Silver City to rejoin the route.

There's a Exxon station/convenience store on the frontage road at Exit 127 that's safer for cyclists to use entering/exiting rather than the Luvs Truck Stop at Exit 132.
