I am enough of a perfectionist, however, that I'd like to be able to back up our claim should anyone ask. One could say that the center of town is the location of the Town Hall on Main Street. I'm not an Earth-Googler, so I can't say much more about that.

I appreciate your interest and would love to receive any data you can offer.
From what I see, there's nothing close enough to even bother. I don't think there's even another incorporated town or city within 20 miles of the border.

If Sarah Palin lived there, she could say - "I can see New Mexico from my house!"

As to the first two sentences, I agree and Thank You for your help, CAVA.

As to the second, if Sarah Palin lived here, I'm pretty sure I would not...

According to your DOT, here are the average number of cars per day you get through there:

sh 389 se/o fanore st, branson @ new mexico-colorado state line________40 cars per day
sh 389 s/o sh 2160______________________________________________ 80 cars per day

Not sure if that might be helpful info. for your cafe plans.

Hmmm, I get the SH 389 part. Any hints on the rest of it?

Somehow when i was copying the data over a "2" got included in front of the State Highway "160" number. I'm guessing 160 is North of town and you have double the number of cars coming/going on that stretch as headed to and from the border?

Oh, the first time I saw your post, the intro sentence and the link were missing/not visible. "fanore st" still baffles me. I'll go to the link for more.

Yes, Hwy 160 is 10 miles to the north of town -- and is more heavily (it's all relative!) traveled. This will definitely be useful as we pull together a business plan. Thanks!

Fanore is one block East of Oliver and runs into Gault. It crosses Branson St.

Oh! You mean over there, around the corner, by the ranch road turn, where the County Highway guys fixed the culvert a year or so ago.

lol. You probably know more local street names than half the people who live here. Thanks for clarifying.

PS to Moderator Mike FBE: As the OP, methinks this thread has probably run its course.
