Eddy County raised over $1.6M to complete the planning phase of the US 285- NM 31 intersection redesign.
Wes Hooper, Community Services Director, reported that Eddy County applied for $25M Federal BUILD Grant. However, Eddy County needed $1.6M to get the planning phase funded, in order to make the intersection a "shovel ready" project so that the project would be considered for the grant funds. Beginning in June 2019, Eddy County went to the community for help "and they came through in a big way", said Hooper.
