ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A major Albuquerque freeway off-ramp will be closed for a month later this year for a multimillion-dollar reconstruction project.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1NXArZa) that an off-ramp that takes drivers from Interstate 40 to Louisiana Boulevard will be off-limits starting in mid-March.

The state Department of Transportation says a $3.7 million project will include improving that ramp.

Improvements will include a third left-turn lane where the ramp meets Louisiana to ease congestion.

The ramp is near one of the city’s most popular shopping districts.

The closure of the eastbound I-40 exit is expected to last 30 days.
