  • Abstract:
    A transformed New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) can better organize work around results that customers consider valuable and concentrate resources on ensuring high-quality results. With the freedom to create new partnerships, NMDOT can better integrate service delivery and policy development. Inclusion of all relevant contributors such as stakeholders, Tribes and potential private sector partners, in the planning and decision-making processes can ensure that approaches to getting the work done are effective and efficient. Empowerment of NMDOT staff with the needed information and training to fulfill their roles in the transformed Department can maximize their capabilities, foster excellence and remove barriers that could impede their effectiveness The NMDOT is charged with the responsibility of intelligently adopting a modernized, balanced approach to meeting the transportation needs of all New Mexicans, implementing a multimodal system that will consider all modes of transport, allowing for innovative approaches for economic development, trade and a sustainable environment. Integration and connection of the highways, railways, airports, bike trails, walking paths and public transportation as one statewide system for safety, accessibility, flexibility, and efficiency is more than an idea; it is an economic imperative to give the state an economic competitive edge with neighboring states, the Rocky Mountain Region, and nationally. By taking a proactive approach now, the new NMDOT can better accommodate growth in cities and towns across the state. In the next two decades, New Mexico will be facing many of the same problems as other metropolitan areas—traffic gridlock, pollution, smog, and commuter apathy. At this crossroads, the State must forge ahead with a broad multimodal transportation initiative that is good for all its citizens and that results in a sound plan to pave the way for New Mexico to go and grow more efficiently now, and well into the 21st century.
