Diamond Drive project faced difficulties

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Appearances by Old Man Winter may have been sparse for Los Alamos this winter in terms of snow accumulation, but that hasn’t stopped cold weather from being a problem.

Phase II of the Diamond Drive project was completed in December, however, Albuquerque contractor AS Horner is still working on punch list items.

Completion of the roadwork has been delayed because of cold weather and as a result, the contractor has asked the county for an extension so that the work can be completed in warmer weather.

Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman was in council chambers during last Tuesday night’s meeting and gave a presentation to council on the project.

However, Zimmerman’s presentation was cut short. Just as he was beginning to list the obstacles that the county was faced with during the Phase II work, Council Chair Michael Wheeler asked Zimmerman to wrap up his presentation.

After a bit of hesitation Zimmerman complied, opening the floor for questions from councilors.

During an interview Monday, Zimmerman said that Phase II was a complicated project with very tight surroundings in which to work.

“The contractor was tasked with keeping traffic flowing and keeping utilities on, so there were challenges,” Zimmerman said.
