East Road Lane Closure Changed to Friday
Due to weather, officials with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities have indicated that a lane closure scheduled to occur Thursday, Sept. 13 will now occur Friday, Sept 14.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m., the eastbound traffic lane on East Road near Los Alamos County Fire Station 6 and Tewa Loop will close.
Construction crews replacing a section of natural gas line along the south side of East Road will excavate into the closed lane to tie the new line into the gas distribution system.
No interruption of gas services is expected.
A flagging operation will permit traffic to travel east and west intermittently in the westbound single lane.
Department officials state that every attempt will be made to conclude repairs by 4 p.m. the same day, prior to the evening rush hour.
Motorists should expect traffic delays Friday morning. Drivers are asked to exercise caution when approaching the work zone and be prepared to stop.
