Because of the LANL 75th Anniversary Celebration being held Saturday, June 30 at Ashley Pond Park, motorists may experience congestion and greatly reduced parking options around the downtown area of Los Alamos, including Trinity Drive and Central Avenue.
The event is expected to bring several thousand LANL employees to the townsite. Central Avenue will be closed 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., from 15th Street to Oppenheimer for the event. Canyon Road is an option to detour around the event. Atomic City Transit will be running trolley service during the event and trolley service is available to the public at no cost.
The Aquatic Center will be open to the public with paid entrance fees Saturday, but LANL employees with a LANL event wristband will be able to use the facility for free as part of the event, and therefore capacity crowds may be expected at the pool.
Traffic on the Main Hill Road may be heavier than usual in the late morning and late afternoon Saturday as LANL employees living in White Rock or outside of the County travel to and from the event. Residents are advised to allow additional travel times Saturday to account for any delays for traffic.
