Bernalillo County, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is beginning a process to create a redevelopment plan for the Bridge Boulevard corridor from Coors Boulevard to the Barelas Bridge. The Bridge Boulevard Corridor Redevelopment Plan will identify appropriate improvements and areas for development to transform Bridge Boulevard into a mixed-use, pedestrian- and transit-friendly corridor that honors and maintains the unique history and character of the community.
Key objectives of the plan include:
Reduced traffic congestion
Revitalized neighborhood businesses
Improved housing availability and affordability
With the support of Bernalillo County Housing, Economic Development, and Zoning, Building, and Planning Departments, the Public Works Division will enhance community livability through affordable housing, revitalized businesses, and sustainable transportation.
The Bridge Boulevard Corridor Redevelopment Plan is funded by a $500,000 grant from HUD and the DOT. The County is matching the grant funds with $382,188.
