County Turning Off Streetlights To Enhance Farolitos Viewing


The Los Alamos County Traffic and Streets Division will be turning off the power to various streetlights to enhance the viewing of holiday farolitos.

The streetlights will be turned off Wednesday, Dec. 24 and will be restored Friday, Dec. 26.

For safety purposes, the County requests that all vehicles and trailers be moved to off street parking during the time that lights will be off. If this is not possible, it is recommended that the vehicles and trailers be silhouetted by farolitos. Due to the limited sight visibility during the viewing, drivers are requested to travel the viewing areas at 15 miles per hour.
