From Constellation Drive and looking west to the second AAM facility on Paseo de River on the opposite side of 599. AAM claims that they are
moving further away from the mobile home parks.
Moving across to the other side of the highway and
expanding operations to 24/7, 7 days per week does
not seem like a significant move.

Truck traffic on 599 going north
toward downtown Santa Fe. The amount of truck traffic
in the areas we photographed was overwhelming.
There was hardly a moment at which huge trucks
weren’t passing us in both directions.
