Where US 550 Once Went

Junction of NM 516, the former US 550, at the current US 550 in Aztec

Before US 550 was extended southeastward, it ended at Farmington. When US 550 was extended in 1999, it was also rerouted to go between Aztec and Bloomfield. The former segment of US 550, connecting Aztec and Farmington, is now NM 516.

This photo was taken in Aztec in May 2008.
