DPU News:

Water crews with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities (DPU) are repairing a waterline on N.M. 4 that broke last weekend. 

Crews continue to work on the shoulder with no interruption to water services in the northeast bound lane leaving White Rock at the bend heading toward the townsite.

A lane may be dropped later today that will require a flagging operation to alternate two-way traffic on the remaining open lane. Working 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., it is anticipated that crews will complete repairs by Wednesday, Jan. 15. 

DPU officials warn that if a lane drop is required traffic delays should be expected. Motorists are asked to provide extra time to reach their destinations and to drive with caution through the construction zone. 

Questions or concerns may be directed to the DPU through the Customer Care Center 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 505.662.8333 or CustomerCare@lacnm.us
