BANDELIER – Road paving following sewage line replacement may cause traffic delays at Bandelier National Monument.

“Construction began last September to replace the sewage lines under the main road into Bandelier National Monument,” Bandelier Superintendent Jason Lott said.

“Installation is complete but now the road on top of the sewage lines must be repaved. This will result in short delays to all park visitors entering and leaving Frijoles Canyon.”

Efforts are underway to try to minimize impacts to park visitors but there will definitely be short delays during the repaving between Monday and Memorial Day, Lott said.

Roadwork will rarely occur on weekends and will not occur during the Memorial Day weekend, he said.

Visitors wishing to avoid the construction zones are encouraged to visit other areas of the park such as Tsankawi or the Alamo Boundary Trail.

For safety reasons, bicycles will be prohibited on the main road during all phases of the repaving, Lott said.

“The purpose of this project is to assure that we have the long-term capacity to provide the restroom facilities needed by park visitors,” said Bandelier Facility Manager Liza Ermeling.
