The Public Works/Traffic Division provides the latest updates on the following projects:
Mesa Public Library West Parking Lot Closure:
Crews continue adjusting manholes in Ponderosa Estates along Aspen Drive, Sumac Lane and Maple Drive. Work is scheduled to continue through the end of July. The concrete being used is a high strength mix and requires a cure time; therefore, residents are urged to avoid driving over these manholes for the first few days after they are poured.
Advance Notice: Diamond Drive Re-paving Set to Start July 22
Star Paving expects to begin working on this urgently needed road re-paving project on Monday, July 22. Work is set to begin at Diamond and Trinity and proceed north to the San Ildefonso roundabout, with a goal to complete work in front of UNM-LA and the High School before school/college resumes for the Fall session mid-August. Watch for more details in next week’s Cone Zone report and allow extra time the Week of July 22 if traveling travel on Diamond Drive.

Other road construction projects:
N.M. 502 Roundabout and Road Reconstruction (NMDOT project)
No change to traffic pattern for last week. The contractor continues working on common trench for utilities 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Expect delays. The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph. N.M. 502 (Trinity Drive) east-bound traffic is being detoured to 4th Street and Central Avenue. After a full stop, motorists should turn right (east) and travel through the construction zone to continue east-bound out of Los Alamos on N.M. 502. West-bound NM502 traffic entering Los Alamos and approaching the roundabout construction zone is being detoured onto Central Avenue; continue west to Knecht Street (or alternatively, continue to the traffic light at 15th Street) then turn left to return to Trinity Drive. There is only one lane of traffic in each direction on Central Avenue. Please slow down, use caution and expect delays in this area, especially during peak commute times.
Traffic advisories from NMDOT are available on www.nmroads.com and motorists are asked to check the site for updates on this project as it proceeds.
TA-21 Clean Up Project – DP Road (N3B project):
No change in truck traffic on DP Road from last week’s report. Clean-up work on the LANL TA-21 Site at the far eastern end of DP Road continues. Large trucks carrying away demolition debris containers will be exiting DP Road at an average of approximately three trucks per day. Motorists are asked to be alert for trucks exiting; use caution when entering or exiting DP Road, as this area is near the N.M. 502 Road Reconstruction project.
