I am responding to a flyer posted around town, with no one claiming ownership, opposing the Bypass Road. It has many statements that are wrong.
First, we must realize that the probability of a dirty bomb being detonated somewhere in the world is increasing. If that happens, NNSA will surely close West Jemez Road to through traffic. Remember, two airplanes colliding with the World Trade Center gave us NNSA’s current “large intestine.”
Now, consider these flyer statements: “Proposed Road To Take Drivers Straight from Jemez down the Truck Route.” Isn’t that what East Jemez Road currently does? Then, “West Road funnels drivers straight towards downtown.” Wrong. After a few minutes’ wait for the light to change, drivers are funneled straight into LANL’s HRL or LAMC’s parking lots!
Next, “the Bypass Road will keep potential visitors away from downtown Los Alamos.” In reality, few visitors and trucks not going to LANL use the Truck Route. They come up the front hill road and are exposed to all the shopping and visiting opportunities the town presents. The flyer states: “Local business should be worried.”
