Diamond Drive Phase II coming into home stretch

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

With temperatures dropping and cool weather quickly setting in, it’s hard to ignore the fact that winter is right around the corner.

With Old Man Winter comes the usual headaches; icy roads, slush, hazardous driving conditions and a plethora of other hassles associated with the winter months.

In addition to the usual winter worries, Los Alamos residents seem to have another worry which may be affected by inclement weather: The Diamond Drive Phase II project.

Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman was in council chambers on Tuesday night to present an update on the work that crews have been doing along Diamond Drive.

Zimmerman started out by saying, “Phase two has been very challenging, doing construction through the narrow corridor. Traffic control has been a challenge and the contractor was falling behind (schedule).”

Zimmerman said that the contractor brought in additional crewmembers to help catch up because they were falling as much as six weeks behind the original schedule. He also said that after the crew was beefed up, the contractor got back on track.

The Diamond Drive Project has not been an easy one for the construction crew, county officials or residents.
