The New Mexico Department of Transportation will beg in scrub seal operations on Tuesday along U.S. 70 from Pine Lodge Road to just north of the overpass in Chaves County.
The pavement preservation project covers about two miles of highway.
The area of road will narrow to a single lane from Tuesday through Friday.
Work should be completed by Friday, weather permitting. Drivers are asked to slow down for road maintenance personnel working in the area and observe temporary signing.
For updated information on this work, people can visit the NMDOT road advisory website at nmroads.com.
