The 2 pm Ground­breaking Cere­mony on Oct. 25 for the State Veterans Cemetery in Gallup will take place at the originally-planned location: the cemetery site, near the intersection of County Road 43—about a mile after you take Exit 22 from Interstate 40.

Steps have been taken to alleviate concerns about an existing construction project near the site.

The New Mexico  Department of Veterans Services apologizes for any confusion, and invites the public to attend this long-awaited event.

Directions

- Take Interstate 40 towards Gallup

- Exit # 22…then turn right (north) onto Ford Drive

- Turn right (east) onto Superman Canyon Road/Highway 43 (roughly 1 mile from Ford Drive)

- Turn right onto Cemetery Drive (dirt road) across from the McKinley County Juvenile Detention Center
