It’s going to take nearly two more years. It won’t be easy. But when it’s over, it will be over for a long time.
“There will be congestion; it will be inconvenient,” said Kyle Zimmerman, Los Alamos County department of public works director. “We will try to minimize it, but there will be delays and disruption.”
He was talking about Phase 4 of the Diamond Drive project that began at the San Ildefonso roundabout and will extend to the Los Alamos Canyon Bridge, skipping north and south across the mesa tops.
This phase will include the intersection of Diamond and Trinity drives, one of the busiest intersections in the town site.
“Twenty-four thousand vehicles a day use that intersection,” Zimmerman said. “That’s a lot of cars.”
Zimmerman’s presentation opened the way for questions from a handful of residents in the audience and the members of the Transportation Board at Fuller Lodge Thursday evening.
Some of the questions dealt with specific concerns by local businesses and other institutions along the road.
Bill Dunn, a resident, who said he had not complained about the Diamond Drive project before, painted a bleak picture of what he had seen in the first three phases of the project.
