Other road construction projects
NM502 Roundabout and Road Reconstruction (NMDOT project)
No change from last week’s report: NM 502 (Trinity Drive) eastbound and westbound traffic is shifted to the south side of NM 502 (Trinity Drive) for the section of roadway between Arroyo Lane and east of Tewa Loop with one lane of travel in each direction.
Access to businesses and buildings or parks located on the north side of NM502 is being maintained.
The current detours between Knecht St. and Central Ave are the same: East-bound NM502 traffic detours onto 4th Street and Central Avenue. After a full stop, motorists turn right (east) and travel through the construction zone to continue eastbound out of Los Alamos on NM502. West-bound NM502 traffic entering Los Alamos and approaching the roundabout construction zone detours onto Central Avenue then west to Knecht Street then left to return to Trinity Drive.
Project hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please slow down, use caution and expect delays in this area, especially during peak commute times.
