The San Miguel County Commission decided last week to abandon a road in the eastern part of the county, but a couple of landowners at the meeting protested the decision.
County officials said only one person used the 3.5 miles of County Road C-53B slated for abandonment. That road is in Maes, N.M., about 35 miles east of Las Vegas.
The officials said the county hadn’t maintained the road in years and that it would cost at least $300,000 to bring it up to county standards. A committee of road viewers this summer recommended that the county abandon the road.
