Local officials recently broke ground on the Los Lunas Interstate Beautification project. The project includes artwork, landscaping and a new design on the Interstate 25 overpass to serve as a gateway to welcome visitors, tourist, residents and prospective businesses to the community. Albuquerque-based EFG Creative, owned by lifelong Valencia County resident Eric F. Garcia, designed the gateway that includes a 22-foot tall cottonwood tree with a sign in its branches welcoming people to Los Lunas. The village has also partnered with Molzen Corbin, Roddick & Dunbar, Ltd, and Sequoia Landscaping on this project. The project includes a sign will be placed on the north and south sides of the overpass, painting the overpass, landscaping and lighting, as well as incorporating the village’s community brand “Small Community, Big Possibilities!” Pictured, from left, are Rep.
