This segment extends from I-25 to Girard. It includes the most popular destinations on the entire corridor, specifically the University of New Mexico and Presbyterian Hospital. The presence of the university and the large student population means this area is constantly evolving and increasing in density. Another important fact to note is that University Boulevard is the proposed location of the next bus rapid transit line in the region and the first north/south rapid transit line. In coordination with the construction of the Albuquerque Rapid Transit line, Presbyterian Hospital will be making many changes to their site plan. The construction of multiple new restaurants has recently been announced and other residential development is coming soon, as it always has in this vibrant and ever evolving area.
