Removed concrete is visble from the corner of Prince Street and First street as the overpass renovation continues. Work on the $2.5 million project has gone as expected so far, New Mexico Department of Transportation Public Information Officer Manon Arnett told The News.

CLOVIS — A little over a month into the estimated nine-month Prince Street overpass renovation projcect, work is proceeding as scheduled, according to the New Mexico Department of Transportation.

NMDOT Public Information Officer Manon Arnett wrote in an email to The News last week that work on the $2.5 million renovation project is "going well."

Arnett wrote that that overpass was in the condition that NMDOT expected.

"Repairs were needed; however, overall the structure is sound," Arnett wrote.

She wrote that the work completed so far includes replacing the overpass' abutments, sealing around the abutments and removal of sidewalk and concrete.

Remaining work includes replacing the metal pedestrian railing, chain link fence and wall barriers surrounding the overpass, as well as bridge paving and installing new approach slabs, lighting and protective coating.

Arnett told The News that the timeline for completing the project remains the same, with the work expected to be finished by summer 2019.
