Article: Landowners quarrel over access to road

From the Las Vegas Optic

North of Ribera, just off an I-25 frontage road, lies County Road B55 — a narrow dirt road that provides access to a handful of properties in rural San Miguel County.

The road also connects to the Santa Fe National Forest. At least it used to. Now a locked gate blocks the road.

“It’s really frustrating,” said Tony Hackebeil who recently purchased property in the area. “There’s no warning of the gate, and once you get to the gate, there’s no place to turn around.”
