HistoryEdit

NN 152 suffered significant damage from Hurricane Norbert, with portions of the road washed away and debris covering large stretches of road. Due to the severity of damage, the New Mexico Department of Transportation closed the road indefinitely and stated it could be more than a month until it was re-opened.[2]
