## Roger Cox & Associates' "PAA-KO" Development
Turnouts Designed Arterial! ##
Another near half mile is LOST from a National Scenic
Byway, the Turquoise Trail, in NM.
Paa-Ko turnout basecourse
is spread; view northbound. Photo, December 7, 2002
The over-building of the Turquoise
Trail, apparently with only developers in mind, may likely continue-if
citizens are not able to convince the NM Department of Transportation,
as well as developers, to adopt and practice Context Sensitive
Design (CSD) policies.
By early 2003 the asphalt is already spread, as shown below in No. 2--6. Photos,
