Sunport Commerce Center Transportation Plan

Plan Overview

The plan area is located in Mountain View Neighborhood and is about 860 acres. The boundaries are Second Street SW on the west, Woodward Road —Sunport Boulevard on the north, I-25 on the east, and Rio Bravo Boulevard on the south. Broadway Boulevard also traverses the plan area from north to south.

Both Broadway and Rio Bravo Boulevards are owned and maintained by the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT). The county’s Planning and Development Services are preparing a Design Overlay Zone (DOZ) for this area to strengthen the quality of development. It will regulate landscaping, fences and walls, architecture, etc.

Public Works/ Technical Services has prepared a parallel Transportation Plan to identify the internal roadway network. By improving access to dozens of parcels, it can help redevelop the area into a cohesive employment center.
