Please slow down and use caution within the construction work zones. Please note that the below information is based on schedule information provided by the contractors and may change due to weather or other delays.

Central Avenue Improvements Project:

The library driveway was scheduled for paving Friday, Oct. 17; however, the driveway remains closed through Wednesday, Oct. 22. Once the library driveway is open, likely around 6:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, the contractor will close Bathtub Row at Central AND Central from just east of Oppenheimer to 20th Street. During this closure, access to the Reel Deal Theater and the library will be provided from eastbound Central. Access to Bathtub Row will be from Peach Street.

  • Directions starting from westbound Central: right at 15th, left at Nectar, which turns into Peach Street, then left onto Bathtub Row.
  • Directions starting from eastbound Canyon: left at Rose, left at Peach, and a quick right onto Bathtub Row. This closure will remain in place for approximately two weeks. Expect intermittent flagging operations at the Central and 20th intersection; in order to avoid delays, please use alternate routes whenever possible.

Once Bathtub Row is open, the library driveway will need to close one more time to complete remaining concrete work. Due to weather delays, substantial completion is expected Friday, Nov. 7.

Western Area Improvements Phase 2:

Expect the contractor to be working on punch list items and general clean up throughout the project area.

Sound Wall between Tewa Loop and Airport Road:

Shoulder work continues on the south side of East Drive; please do not park on the south side of East Drive. Contractor has started preparation for the installation of landscaping.
