Long Description:
The Rodeo Intermediate Field Civil Aeronautics Authority Field #57A marker is located on the South West corner of the intersection of Hwy 80 and Hwy 9 just North of Rodeo, N. M. The inscription reads:

Rodeo Intermediate Field
Civil Aeronautics Authority #57A

The intermediate field system, developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, greatly increased safety in early commercial aviation. Rodeo Intermediate Field #57A was established in 1930 to enhance navigation for Standard Airline - later TWA - from California to El Paso, and served as an auxiliary field during WW II. Its building foundations, earthen air strips and red directional arrow pointing the way to El Paso still are visible today.
