The New Mexico Department of Transportation will continue its chip seal work on N.M. 4 this week between mile marker 59.0 and mile marker 51.5.
Between Monday, July 23 and Thursday, July 26, minor traffic delays can be expected on that stretch of road.
Motorists will encounter one-lane road closures from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.with a flagging operation and pilot car escort.
Drivers are asked to proceed through the work zone with caution and observe traffic control signing and reduced speed limits.
Bicycling through the work zone is “highly discouraged” due to the oily surface, loose gravel, and heavy truck traffic.
