Let’s stabilize those precarious boulders

-A A +A

I’ve watched with interest the debate about what, if anything, should be done with the N.M. 502/Trinity Drive Corridor project.
It appears that there’s money to be spent and we must find a way to spend it – to avoid losing it – regardless of the impact on quality-of-life for commuters and local residents.
After reading about the “near miss” incident on the main hill road, wherein a car was demolished by a falling boulder (not the first time this has happened), I’d like to suggest that if  money MUST be spent on road improvements, we turn our attention away from the N.M. 502 project and think about stabilizing the mountainside that periodically rains life-threatening boulders onto vehicles in route to Los Alamos.
