Default Sonoma Ranch Blvd is OPEN!

From the Sun-News:

"After 18 years, and plenty of wishing and hoping from city of Las Cruces administrators and motorists, there is now access to east Lohman Avenue and U.S. Highway 70 through Sonoma Ranch Boulevard."

Sonoma Ranch Boulevard is open (9:40 p.m.) - Las Cruces Sun-News

I wonder why the one section (about 300 yards) of the northbound side is still not open. I did my evening run through that new section last night. There is no joggers lane once you run over the bridge, headed towards the golf course. It seems as though it was rushed to be opened, it's not really complete.

Is this the section you are referring to (from the LC-Sun-News)?

"Motorists who now plan to use Sonoma Ranch Boulevard should be aware that a portion approximately two-tenths of a mile long just north of Lohman will only be two lanes until development of that area begins. When that happens, the land owners of that parcel, Las Crucens Grady Oxford and Royal Jones, will be required to either expand the road or pay the city the cost to have it done."

That's precisely the section. And I'll tell you, before too long, there is going to be some sort of an accident, either with one or multiple vehicles, or perhaps a pedestrian accident. Oxford and Jones should have been required to pay, or the city of Las Cruces should complete that one section. All the trappings of a potential lawsuit are palpable.

It sounds like poor planning by the city. Although completion of the rest of the road will probably expedite the development of those parcels, the developers should have been held to the city's timetable for development of the road.
