Feds deny grant application for second I-25 interchange in Los Lunas_1545093900613.jpg.jpg

A project that people in Valencia County have been waiting years for is facing a new hurdle. 

For more than a decade, the village of Los Lunas has talked about building a second I-25 interchange to ease traffic through downtown – a goal that could now take even longer to achieve. 

The village was recently notified that its application for a federal grant for the project was denied. 

Officials say they hope to meet with the U.S. Department of Transportation to see how they can improve their application, and apply again next year.
