Share your opinion!
Eleven years ago a goal for developing walking and biking trails along Highway 165 was written into the Placitas Area Plan (a Sandoval County document). Since then a lot has happened, but nothing has been done to improve the safety of walking or biking along 165 through Placitas. Shoulders are nonexistent in many places and where they do exist they are more often than not in very poor condition. Share your opinions with us and help us find a solution.
Projects and Activities
