TRAFFIC ALERT:

As more employees start returning to work on site at the Lab, a hazardous traffic condition (several near misses) has surfaced when vehicles enter and exit TA-72 (Protective Force Live Fire Range Complex). 

Vehicles traveling east and west on East Jemez Road (truck route) are traveling too fast on this straightaway and appear to be unaware of the hazard.

This hazard has been identified and is being worked on by LANL Utilities and Infrastructure, but has been impacted by COVID, and the process has slowed. 

Please take notice of the location of TA-72 (pictured above) and be cautious through this area as there are continuous training operations taking place at the range complex.

Direct questions on this matter to Rick Gandenberger, Director, Environmental Safety and Health at 505-667-6046.
