The Santa Fe County Road Department has begun applying a maintenance treatment of asphalt millings

to certain roads in Eldorado. These millings are reclaimed ground up asphalt from other road

improvement projects, and will improve the road surface like the application of gravel or base course

does. Work started in early May and is expected to continue throughout the spring and summer.

 

There are 33 roads for a total distance of 15.18 miles in Eldorado that have been identified to be

upgraded with the asphalt millings. The roads were selected with input from the ECIA Roads Committee

and County public works staff, and are those that have a history of significant rutting and poor drivability

due to heavy mud during periods of prolonged rain or snow. The list of roads that have been identified

for the millings work follows below. The list is in alphabetical order, not the order of completion. The

County will put a message board on a road several days in advance of work beginning to advise affected

residents.

The first step the County crew will do in this process will be to clean out and re-establish the bar ditches

adjacent to the road and to re-crown the road surface. Next, they will apply layers of the milled asphalt

material, some water, and then roll it in. The resulting hard packed surface will be gray in color, like a

road that has been chip sealed such as Enebro Road or the beginning of Camerada Loop. The county

crew completed the prep work on Carlito Road last week and is working on Estambre Road this week.

They expect to begin applying the millings late this week or early next.

These millings were donated to the county by the NMDOT, so the only cost to the county is the

equipment and labor that is already budgeted through normal road maintenance. The most common

complaint that the Road Committee receives from Eldorado residents is about the muddy conditions,

with the residents requesting that gravel or base course be applied to their road to improve the surface.

Funding for actual improvements to these roads including substantial amounts of gravel or base course

is limited, so the donation of the asphalt millings is a significant opportunity to upgrade some of the

more troublesome roads.

The following roads (in alphabetical order), with start and end points, are scheduled to be resurfaced

with the asphalt millings.
