Notice for Another Highway

Classic New Mexico 'notice' sign on US 64-US 84 near Tierra Amarilla

A distinctive feature of New Mexico information signs is the use of the word Notice followed by extensive text. This one, on US 64-US 84 at the NM 531 intersection near Tierra Amarilla, is warning against trucks using another highway, NM 112. NM 531 connects NM 112 and US 64-US 84. Southwest of Vado Lake, NM 112 becomes an unpaved route, and doesn't make a good short-cut to the west for trucks.
