District 3

“Keeping New Mexico’s Highways Safe”

Serving the counties of Chaves, Eddy and Lea

District 3 is located in the South Eastern part of the state along the border with Texas. It is a very rural district with a large land area and a multitude of state and county roads crisscrossing it. There is a very high volume of local truck traffic back and forth from Texas and from community to community within this part of New Mexico due to the oil, gas, milk, farm and ranch industries.

MTP District 3 has two ports of entry regulating commercial vehicles entering or leaving New Mexico from Texas on major routes, and one Headquarters office located in the city of Roswell.

The District 3 Headquarters Office (Roswell) is located at 4207 SE West Second Street (US 70/380 West). HQ Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Carlsbad Port of Entry is open five days a week with one civilian Transportation Inspector. Open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Located west of Carlsbad, NM on U.S. 62/180 at mile marker 26 to work commercial traffic to, and from El Paso, Texas. This is also the route to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

The Hobbs Port of Entry is open five days a week with one civilian Transportation Inspector. Open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Located East of Hobbs, NM on U.S. 62/180 near the Texas border.
