Update: Pipeline construction in the Rio Grande Gorge will begin as scheduled on Tuesday, (Aug. 1) but the one-way restricted traffic zone on State Road 68 won't begin until Monday, (Aug. 7), according to New Mexico Gas Co. Work will begin Aug.1 near Mile Marker 30 north of Pilar. One construction crew will be off the road at a distance and a second crew will be clearing vegetation in the right-of-way along State Road 68. "Motorists should watch for increased truck traffic where the highway climbs out of the canyon north of Pilar and at the BLM rest area on State Road 68," according to a news release from the gas company.
