The awards range from an $80,000 project in Los Alamos County to install flashing speed signs at all county schools, to $225,000 for critical reconstruction of the Upper Catwalk Trail in the Gila National Forest, and $5.5 million to design and construct a multi-use trail connecting schools, residences and the community center through the heart of Jemez Pueblo along N.M. 4.
