The construction of the new sidewalks, pedestrian crossing, and fencing near the Downtown Bernalillo Rail Runner Station is nearly complete, with the opening scheduled for late March 2019.
Each day, Rail Runner and Amtrak trains traveling at speeds of up to 79 mph pass through the Town of Bernalillo. While the crossing will have active gates, lights, and bells to alert pedestrians of oncoming trains, please remember to ALWAYS use caution when using the crossing.
- Look both ways when crossing each of the three tracks
- Be prepared to yield the right-of-way to a train
- Proceed immediately through the crossing
