Looping into Tierra Amarilla

One of the two intersections of NM 162 with US 84 in Tierra Amarilla

New Mexico doesn't use "business" designations for routes going into towns bypassed by US routes. In Tierra Amarilla, NM 162 effectively serves as the business route for US 84. It connects with US 84 at both the north end of the town and, shown here, at the south end. US 64 joins US 84 just north of this intersection as well, and NM 162 crosses that route.
