Will Santa Fe get a tunnel or bridge? (Listen)
(2012-05-03)
(KSFR) -
The busy Santa Fe intersection of Cerrillos Road and St. Francis Drive may get either a tunnel or a pedestrian bridge. The questions are which one and when? Planning officials are looking at both options to allow people to walk or bike across the intersection. They say either option would cost about the same -- $3.5 million.

A 74-year-old Santa Fe man is dead and a pit bull is in quarantine as the authorities investigate the incident. They're not saying yet if the dog may have been involved.

Today's the day a key I-25 off ramp into Santa Fe will be closed for repairs. Drivers heading north on the interstate will not be able to get off at the St. Francis exit. They'll either have to take the Cerrillos Road exit or the one at Old Pecos Trail. Work on the project could last all summer.

Former Gov. Gary Johnson is in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the Libertarian Party holds it presidential nominating convention this weekend. Party officials say their polling indicates that Johnson will likely win the nomination to be their candidate in the November general elections.

PNM and several other companies plan to develop a 200-mile transmission line to carry solar and wind power generated in New Mexico to a hub that will send it to other states throughout the west. None of the power is expected to benefit New Mexico. A transmission line from eastern New Mexico to the hub in Farmington area could stretch through Santa Fe County. They say the price tag for the project will be about $350 million.
Meanwhile, conservation groups and other wind energy companies in New Mexico have formed an alliance to make sure that wildlife and the environment are not harmed by new windmill systems. Matt Desmond of First Wind Corp. says they've developed best practices for companies to follow to protect a dozen species of wildlife. ***
