New Mexico State Road 119 is a state road in east central New Mexico, entirely within western Guadalupe County. This two lane road runs from Dilia to Anton Chico.

Route description[edit]

Beginning in Dilia at the intersection with U.S. Route 84, mile marker 78, the road heads west past Upper Dilia to the south. At the two mile (3 km) point it passes Llano Del Medio, to the south, at which point the road heads northwest. At milepost 3, there is a road to the south to Llano Veijo which is about a mile away. At about milepost 3.5 the road makes a 90 degree turn to the left, heading southwest, and shortly thereafter is the intersection with NM 451 from the north. After NM 451 the road crosses the Pecos River. The speed limit is 55 mph (89 km/h) from mile marker 0 until mile marker 4.

Right after the river crossing, at mile post 4, the speed limit reduces to 40 mph (64 km/h). NM 119 enters Anton Chico at the south end of town at a traffic triangle where it terminates at the intersection with NM 386 (mile marker 9) from Tecolotito (San Miguel County). NM 119 formerly turned sharply north at the traffic triangle to pass through Anton Chico and deadend at the Pecos River; a bridge used to cross the Pecos at that point, too.[2]

Major junctions[edit]

The entire route is in Guadalupe County.
