Road Conditions

Road conditions change over a short period of time in New Mexico as plows clear roads and the sun comes out or temperatures change. The three websites below give useful general information about road conditions but experience tells us that they may, for instance, indicate “snow-packed and icy” conditions when, in fact, roads are clear. For more up-to-date specific local road conditions, you can call the local office of State Police, local police, Highway Department or County. Dispatchers are available on weekends at police offices but not highway departments. List of contact numbers is below.
