Traffic engineers are reconfiguring traffic plans on N.M. 4 and N.M. 502 to improve the rush-hour commute from Los Alamos during road construction activities.
Drivers may consider using Main Hill Road to leave LANL and Los Alamos for the next couple of weeks as today begins construction work between the intersection of East Jemez Road/N.M. 4 and N.M. 502. A pilot car will escort traffic between the two points during off-peak hours.
Engineers are planning today through Thursday to reconfigure lanes on N.M. 502 to ensure there are two lanes open for the afternoon commute from Los Alamos.
Beginning Friday and through the weekend, a section of N.M. 502 East from Los Alamos will be reduced to one lane.
For the time being, some drivers are choosing to use N.M. 4 through Jemez to get to Albuquerque.
Federal officials are asking that drivers continue to use respect and civility. Updates on construction activities and traffic impacts will continue as work progresses over the next three months. The road improvements are part of the Supplemental Environmental Projects at LANL.
