Roosevelt County Commissioners declined to apply for a state highway improvement project.

The commissioners motioned and voted against applying for the New Mexico Department of Transportation Statewide Transportation Improvement Program for N.M. 88.

To fix N.M. 88 properly, the entire road would have to be torn apart and widened, with a projected cost of $20 million, said Commission Chairman David Sanders.
