Road Obstacle! In State ESPANOLA (UPD— One of the, tew remaining obstacles lo the proposed east-west highway across Northern New Mexico fell nvvay when opponents of the highway's far norlh routing withdrew opposition. Members ot the newly- formed New Mexico East-West Highway Association, a group which favors a southern routing for the highway, met in Espanola Tuesday and said they will not fight the northern route. Association I-resIdent Phil Mauro of Ojo Caliente said the group took the actior because the Jlcarllla Apache Tribal Council resolved some time ago that the highway will cross their reservation at the tribal capital of Dulce, in the far north, or not at all. The Slate Highway Department has approved the northern route and has started'plans for a high level bridge across the Rio Grande Gorge near Taos. The proposed highway will travel from Taos through Chama, Dulce, the Navajo Dam area and into Farmlnglon. The southern route would have left the Rio Grande Gorge bridge in the plan but have gone west on NM 11 to Tres Piedras, south on U.S. 285 to Ojo Caliente and LaMadera, west again through El Rito and connecting svith U.S. 84 then north on N.M. 96; west across the Aibquiu Dam, through Coyote, Gallina and eventually to the four-corners area. Mauro said this southern route would only need one mile of Apache reservation right-of-way. "If the Apache council were ap.| preached properly, I'm sure Ih would see the need to develop I he southern part ot their reservation as well as the north," Mauro said. The Assbciation said much of the southern route Is complete and several other sections .will soon be let to bid for surfacing. They expressed hope that their southern route would be a raality before the northern route. They said the northern roule would be snowed in during the winter and much of the traffio would be diverted to/the southern. The group will ask (he "Stale Highway Commission to make a feasibility study of the southern route as an alternate route al the commission's April 25 meeting.
