The 4th Street Revitalization of the Village of Los Ranchos will transform the corridor into an economic and civic hub for this small municipality in Bernalillo County’s North Valley. The project includes both master planning and design of this Route 66 remnant. The former two-lane street without pedestrian facilities is now a right-of-way composed of roadways, utility poles, primarily asphalt with undefined parking and no pedestrian or biking improvements. Local residents, merchants and visitors will benefit as this thoroughfare transforms into a more complete street with restaurants, commerce, civic spaces and more.
Sites Southwest conducted a resident and business survey for the village. It highlights the need for a central district in which people can eat, entertain, live and socialize; activities that will boost the local economy and sustain a vibrant corridor. A Sites’ market study identified economic opportunities and positive investments in 4th Street that will add vitality to the village center.
Planned improvements include: permeable paving for sidewalks, landscaping, lighting, low impact development drainage improvements, on-street parking, a new reduced lane street with crosswalks and pedestrian beacons. A sense of the community’s unique history and culture will be retained.
Sites Southwest is the project’s prime consultant. Our team will provide project planning, design and guidance through the future construction of this exciting street makeover.
