It is nicknamed ABQ, The Duke City and Burque. Its inhabitants are "Albuquerqueans" (or Burqueños).


People have lived in this area for over 10,000 years (the site at Sandia Cave is proof of this). Later the Pueblo people settled in the valleys of the rivers that flowed into the Rio Grande.

Seeking the "Cities of Gold", the Spanish explored the area, and in 1540 Francisco Vásquez de Coronado named the native people "Pueblo", after the Spanish word for "village".

The Spanish settled in Santa Fe in the early 1600s and converted the natives to Catholicism but opression led to a rebellion in 1680 which destroyed the colonial towns. The Spanish returned in 1692 and resettled the area, founding Albuquerque in 1706 as a key stopover on the Camino Real (Royal Road).

Origin of the name Albuquerque

The name Albuquerque comes from Extremadura, Spain. The first part of the word "Al-bury" is arabic for "the tower", remember that the Arabs occupied spain between 711 and 1492 A.D. The second part is pre-Roman, "Karkar" a local hill. Both form: Al-bury-Karkar or "Alburquerque", with an "R".

Another version says the name derives from the latin words for "white oak" (Albus quercus).

The local nobles were the Dukes of Alburquerque and one of them, Francisco was viceroy of New Spain (which comprised Mexico and all of the Southwestern USA) from 1653 to 1660.

The governor of Nueva Mejico named the town after the Duke of Alburquerque. Common usage led to the dropping of the first "R" and the town became known under its present name of Albuquerque.

After its independence from Spain, Nueva Mexico passed on to Mexico but it was ceded to the U.S. who won the Mexican - American War (1846-48). Confederate troops occupied the town during the Civil War and the Battle of albuquerque took place there on April 8, 1862.

Trivia: Altitude

Albuquerque is one of the highest major cities in the United States, ranging from 4,900 feet (1.490 m) in the Valley to over 6,700 feet (1.950 m) in the Sandia Mountain foothills.

In 1880 the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad reached the town and built its depot and station 2 miles east of the Old Town Center, creating the New Town or downtown area, which incorporated in 1891 and in 1920 absorbed the Old Town.

Route 66 was aligned through the town along the old Santa Fe - Las Vegas loop. It soon brought new business to the central part of town. In 1937 it was realigned when the Santa Fe cut-off shortened the road which took an east-west course to Santa Rosa through Moriarty and to the west, the "Laguna cut-off" shortened the road towards Gallup.

The atomic age became part of Albuquerque with the Sandia National Laboratories (1949). But Route 66 and its chain of motels, diner and filling stations would be bypassed by I-40 when the Interstate looped around the north part of town in the 1960s.

Tornado risk

The tornado risk in Albuquerque is nil: Bernalillo County has no Tornado watches. There have only been thirteen tornados here since 1883, and most of them have been F0 grade. The worst, in 1974 killed one and injured eight, running for 2 miles with an F2 force.

Map U.S. 66 in Albuquerque New Mexico

There have been several alignments of Route 66 across Albuquerque since the highway was created in 1926 when it was aligned along the original highways in this area: the "Ozark Trail", the "Santa Fe Trail" and the "National Old Trails".

These highways were known as "Auto Trails" and part of a public demand for "better roads": a movement that lobbied for good highways that could be used by motor vehicles, and also signs to mark them and help drivers to find their destination. New Mexico authorities improved the original Ozark Trail in 1914 and designated it as New Mexico State Highway 3. The thumbnail map (Click to see large size map), shows some of the "Auto Trails" that could be used by cars in 1912 in the area close to Albuquerque; the trails are marked with red lines.

The second thumbnail map above (from 1925) -click on it to see the full sized map- shows the roads that existed one year before Route 66 was created.

Those marked "22" (National Old Trails Rd., coming from Los Angeles) and "32" (New Santa Fe Rd.) with white letters in a black box, went from Gallup to Albuquerque through Santa Fe. Highway "50" (Ozark Trails) had two forks, one from Albuquerque to Moriarty and then south through Clovis into Texas, and another from Albuquerque to Dilia.

The only paved sections (full black line) was between Albuquerque and Bernalillo, and Albuquerque and Tijeras. The highway from Bernalillo to Santa Fe, and beyond Isleta was "improved" (dashed line), the rest were either graded or dirt roads.

The 1926 Route 66 alignment

The Santa Fe Loop (1926 - 1937)

This was the first alignment of Route 66, from Santa Rosa to Albuquerque via Pecos and Santa Fe.

We describe this segment in our Santa Fe Loop page, a dedicated webpage, with the full alignment, from Santa Rosa, through Dillia, Pecos, Santa Fe, Santo Domingo, and Bernalillo all the way to Albuquerque.
This original highway continued beyond Albuquerque to Isleta, Peralta and Mesita.

The 1926 -1937 into Albuquerque from Bernalillo

South of Bernalillo, starting at I-25's Exit 248 continue along Camino Real Pan American Central Hwy or NM 313, and follow it south all the way into Albuquerque. At Sandia Pueblo the highway merges with NM-556 at a roundabout. Head south along NM 556, it becomes 4th St. NW. At Marquette Ave., 4th St. changes direction so you can't drive along it into downtown Albuquerque, for those driving, you must follow 5th until meeting the 1937-85 alignment of US 66 on Central Ave.

This is the Map of the driveable part from Bernalillo to Lomas Blvd., and this is the yellow line shows the course of the old '66 that can't be driven across the Civic Plaza, and southwards to Barelas district as 4th St. runs from south to north.

Albuquerque to Suwanee along the 1926 - 37 Route 66

The highway crossed the Rio Grande in Barelas and then along what is now NM 314, headed south along the western bank of the river going through the villages of Isleta, Peralta, and Los Lunas. There it turned west.

This section is now NM 6 higway. It flanked the Cerro de los Lunas mountain (5,957 ft) and then crossed the Puerco River. It ran close to the railroad and both skirted a 6,500 ft. high volcanic plateau (Mesa Carriza, Mesa Lucero) as shown in this Map to Suwanee, where it continued west towards Mesita. Later this is where it would meet the alignment via 9-mile-hill.

1937 Realignment of Route 66

A political dispute between New Mexico Governor A. T. Hannett and local politicians led to the realignment of Route 66 in 1937.

Hannett blamed the local party bosses when he lost his 1927 bid to re-election. He decided to punish them, and their backers (the business men in Santa Fe) so he quickly had state highway #6 built, in 1927, to link Moriarty with Albuquerque. This highway bypassed the capital city, and was 90 miles shorter for those driving from the east to Albuquerque.

In 1937, the Federal roadbuilders decided to realign Route 66 using Hannett's road, and paved it. It was a straighter highway, and only had a short mountain segment across the Sandia Mountains between Sedillo, Tijeras and Carnuel.

South of Albuquerque, the "Laguna Cut-Off" (named after the Laguna Mission Village west of ABQ and Los Lunas) eliminated the southern section of the 1920s alignment: in 1937 the whole highway was moved north. It used the new bridges and climbed out of Albuquerque westwards and took a straight course towards Suwanee and Laguna. Both Isleta and Los Lunas had been cutoff.

Route 66 across Albuquerque (1937 - 85)

The highway descended the western slope of the Sandia Mountains along Tijeras Canyon from Carnuel.

1937-50s two lane highway

The original Route 66 had two lanes and had a winding course along the north slope of in this section of the Canyon.

The highway followed the alignment marked with a bue line in our custom map.

Finally, when the highway reached the level area at the foot of the mountains it curved (green line in our map) to the north and met Central Ave. at Tramway Blvd.
This quarter mile long, curved segment has survived and you can walk along it. It is pictured below:

As traffic grew, a safer and straighter highway was needed so the old roadway became the eastbound lanes and a new set of straighter lanes were added north of them, for the westbound traffic. We marked them with a red line in our custom map.

The image below looks west along the four lane alignment where Exit 167 offramp begins.

This four-lane alignment was buried by I-40 and the same spot where the picture shown above was taken is now under the freeway's westbound lanes (same spot as it is nowadays). So a new extension to Central Ave was built east to carry I-40s frontage Rd., NM 333.

Central Avenue

This area at Tramway and Central Ave. was empty space. There were motels along Route 66 west of this point. The first signs of an urban area appeared at Wyoming Blvd. three miles west.

Route 66 followed Central Ave all the way into downtown Albuquerque and then through the Old Town and onwards until it crossed the Rio Grande.

It did so from 1937 until it was decertified in 1985. This is the map of Route 66 across Albuquerque.

The original 1937 Route 66 ran along the westbound lanes of Central Avenue from the Rio Grande bridge all the way along 9-Mile Hill (Map of the first 6 miles) a second set of eastbound lanes were added in the mid 1950s. At what is now Exit 149, the highway followed the alignment shown with a violet line (0.8 mile gap in the alignment) and ended up as the North Frontage Rd. The eastbound lanes were buried by I-40s WB lanes in 1970. This 1951 aerial photo shows what Exit 149 looked like before I-40 was built.

The highway headed west for another 7.7 mi. (map to Exit 140) where Exit 140 disturbed its alignment at the Rio Puerco rivier. The gap is marked with a green line here.

It crossed the river along the historic Rio Puerco Bridge Listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge was built in 1933 on NM State highway 6 and it was part of the plan to shorten the transcontinental route and became part of Route 66 in 1937 when the "Laguna Cut Off" was implemented, bypassing Isleta and Los Lunas.

The bridge's deck is 25 feet wide and was remodeled in 1957. When I-40 absorbed the traffic of Route 66, it became its Frontage Road until 1999 when the NM Transportation Department replaced it. It is open to pedestrian traffic.

The highway continued west along what is now the N Frontage Rd. for 2.1 mi. (map), and then it turned and runs under I.40s EB lanes as marked with a red line in our custom map, all the way to Suwanee. Here as I-40 curves north, the original highway continued with a SW course into Suwanee, where it meets the 1926-37 alignment.

The Volcanoes

The "Three Sisters" or Albuquerque volcanoes, and the West Mesa area formed simultaneously 150,000 years ago when the Earth's crust cracked and allowed magma to rise through it along a 5 mi. (8 km) fissure like a curtain of fire.
The Rio Grande Valley is actually a "rift", where the Earth's crust is thinner allowing lava to flow upwards, the valley to sink and the lateral areas to rise, like the Sandia Mountains to the east. There are several trails from 0.8 to 2 miles long, from easy to moderately strenuous, which allow you to view the volcanoes by hiking around the cinder cones. Great views of the Rio Grande Valley and the Sandia Mountains. Take water with you. Parking lot is located at Atrisco Vista Blvd. NW (former Paseo del Volcan), about 4.8 miles north of I-40. (see Street View).
