The article reports that a controversial road proposal through a culturally significant area in Albuquerque, New Mexico that voters rejected in a 2003 election is part of a $52.5 million general obligation road bond measure to appear on the November 2 ballot. The latest proposal includes money for reconstruction of major streets and intersections, landscaping of medians, repair of bridges, and other efforts. The bonds would also fund work in conjunction with a state project to rebuild an Interstate 40 interchange and for design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction of street improvements in the vicinity.
