New Mexico will now allow certain highway and projects funded in whole or in part by federal funds to use the design-build delivery method. On the last day (March 9, 2016) to sign bills from the most recent legislative session, Governor Susana Martinez signed HB 206 , which permits the Department of Transportation to use the design-build delivery method for road and highway projects above $50 million.
