On March 2 at 7 p.m., the county council will hold a special meeting in order to discuss the West Jemez Bypass project. Whether you are for or against the Bypass, please plan to attend this meeting in order to give your two cents worth of input to council.
I personally believe that $12 million plus is way too much to pay for a half-mile Bypass given that it is not clear we even need it. We have gone through two winter seasons using the FEMA funded Ski Hill Bypass and West Road connector. This route has worked well. The Ski Hill was packed until the snow stopped. People are getting where they need to go. Does anyone really believe that there is a crisis in our road system today that requires $12 million to fix?
Building the Bypass will use up open space unnecessarily and it will disrupt and fragment the environment and habitat of the Research Park property by placing a large dam-like road structure across a quarter mile area that includes a side-canyon to Los Alamos canyon and splits the property in two. Huge amounts of fill will be required to build this dam-like structure that is up to 40 feet high in at least one area of the side-canyon.
