Groundbreaking Ceremony Held for New Santa Fe Interchange

SANTA FE, NM (June 29, 2015) – A groundbreaking ceremony was held this week to celebrate the start of construction on a new interchange in Santa Fe.  The Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) will be located near Santa Fe at the I-25/NM 14 (Cerrillos Road) interchange.  This advancement in interchange design will be the first of its kind in New Mexico.  The DDI will not only improve safety and efficiency, but will also reduce the length and cost of construction.  The New Mexico Department of Transportation selected this design for its ability to accommodate future traffic growth within this developing area of Santa Fe.

Governor Susana Martinez was joined by state, local and federal officials who highlighted the benefits of this $19.8 million project.  The Governor stated, “Our roads are the literal foundation for commerce, and this new interchange will improve safety and allow people and goods to move more efficiently to better accommodate growth.” The project was a combined effort, supported by state and federal funding. 

Department of Transportation Secretary Tom Church and Federal Highway Administration Division Administrator Don Martinez also discussed the enhanced safety performance through fewer or less severe crashes, the reduced operational expenses and the addition of a pedestrian and bicycle trail. 

The DDI was originally developed in Europe and is now being used across the United States. Molzen Corbin designed this state-of-the-art interchange taking into consideration Santa Fe’s future growth and incorporating artwork that celebrates the rich history of the Turquoise Trail.

McKinnon Family Tennis Center Honored for Excellence by USTA

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (June 16, 2015) – The McKinnon Family Tennis Center, located on the campus of the University of New Mexico, was recently recognized by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) for excellence in construction and/or renovation of a tennis facility.  The Center was one of only thirteen winners in the country to receive this annual award.  It is also the only facility in the nation honored in the Educational Institution category.

The Center consists of six new competition-caliber courts.  The sunken courts are surrounded by spectator seating and include stadium lighting which allows the flexibility to schedule dual matches and tournaments.  The park-like landscaping includes signature fencing, logoed court benches, black-out widescreens on the non-spectator side of the courts, generous space at the baseline, and easy access to parking, along with concessions, public restrooms, scoreboards, and a sound system. 

Molzen Corbin provided architectural design services to this first-class addition and is working with the University on future phases of expansion to include six more outdoor competition courts along with a clubhouse. In addition to making the facility more spectator-friendly and boosting the recruiting advantage, this expansion has successfully enabled UNM to host additional tournaments, including the Mountain West Tournament and the USTA/ITA Mountain Regional Tournament.

The USTA is the national governing body for the sport of tennis in the U.S. and the leader in promoting and developing the growth of tennis. For more information on the USTA, visit www.usta.com.

Water Resources Members Present at Spring Water Conference
Presentation by Clayton Ten Eyck, P.E.

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (May 1, 2015) – Members from Molzen Corbin recently presented at the First Annual Spring Conference hosted by the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water Works (RMSAWWA) and the Rocky Mountain Water Environment Association (RMWEA).  This sold-out conference was held at the Rotunda at the UNM Science & Technology Park and targeted water industry professionals, academics, operators, as well as students.

Clayton Ten Eyck, P.E. discussed the Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant for the Anthony Water and Sanitation District designed by Molzen Corbin.  This facility included reverse osmosis membrane treatment coupled with a sophisticated blending configuration to efficiently remove contaminants including, but not limited to, arsenic, nitrates and TDS with flexibility to treat single and multiple wells within their water supply.

Casey Cook, P.E. gave an overview of the water supply system design for the Zia Enterprise Zone.  The goal of this project was to create a clean and consistent water supply for the Pueblo’s planned commercial development in San Ysidro while avoiding the need for arsenic treatment. Among the technical challenges was a river crossing underneath the Jemez River.

Molzen Corbin team members continue to support our communities throughout the State of New Mexico while providing solutions to manage our water resources.
