For Immediate Release
Mesilla Dam Bridge Shutdown February 19-22, 2019
Las Cruces, NM
Date: February 5, 2019
Contact: EBID 575-526-6671, Ext 1

As part of Elephant Butte Irrigation District’s Operation and Maintenance of Mesilla Dam, EBID will be performing maintenance to the dam February 19-22, 2019. As with the previous work phase, to conduct this work safely and efficiently, EBID will need to temporarily close the bridge across the dam to traffic and access.

The bridge across the dam is subject to closure at any time. The District is notifying the public in advance of this shutdown so that they can make arrangements for alternative routes. The public should expect potential 24 hour access closure during these dates and plan accordingly. Your patience and cooperation are appreciated as we conduct this necessary maintenance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not approach EBID personnel working on the dam. Contact EBID District Treasurer/Manager Gary Esslinger at 575-526-6671, Ext. 1 or
