From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
Feb. 17, 1963: Taos — State Highway commissioner John Sudderth last night told a large gathering of New Mexicans that the high level bridge over the Rio Grande near Taos and its approaches will be let to contract this June. He said that Gov. Jack M. Campbell, in conferences before and after the election, had said the highway across the northern part of the state was a key to the development of the largest economically depressed area of New Mexico. He said the bridge, which is presently 80 percent designed, is estimated to cost $1.5 million. The western and eastern approaches to the bridge are estimated to cost about $1.5 million.
Feb. 17, 1988: A Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce official criticized the city Monday for making it illegal to park by the river park on East Alameda near the Paseo de Peralta intersection. City Transportation Division said Monday that the curbs on the south side of Alameda east and west of the Paseo de Peralta intersection were painted yellow in order to create new left-turn bays on Alameda. A downtown shop owner who is chairman of the North Area Council of the chamber said the area beside the river park is a favorite parking spot for tourists in recreation vehicles during the summer months. “Also, you see Santa Fe families enjoying the river park. Now there’s no place to park. They’re forcing people out of the downtown area. It’s totally stupid.”
