This reconstruction project involved the widening and improvements of I-40 through Albuquerque.  The limits of the project, both eastbound and westbound, were I-40 from just east of the San Mateo Boulevard interchange to just west of the Boulevard interchange.  Accommodating interstate traffic was a challenge with weekday traffic flows that exceeded 155,000 vehicles per day through the construction zone.  A large flood channel exists between the eastbound and westbound lanes which eliminated the ability to shift traffic into oncoming lanes.
