N.M. 502 study gets more input

-A A +A

Council will discuss the study Jan. 25

By Kirsten Laskey

The community voiced their opinions on the different options for N.M. 502 Corridor Tuesday night. The options will be presented to Los Alamos County Council Jan. 25.
During the meeting Tuesday, a representative of MIG, the consulting company for the N.M. 502 Corridor study, presented three options that council will consider for further research.
Jay Renkens, director of urban planning services, said various alternatives for the corridor were explored but the transportation board and the sustainability board recommended pursuing two variations of option A based on community input heard in November. A third variation was later added to expand on some concerns.
A1 would feature eight roundabouts along Trinity and a two-lane road ­– one in each direction – with a landscaped median down the middle, which would restrict left turns. Access to Los Alamos Medical Center would be relocated to 35th and 36th Streets.  There also would be a bike lane and pedestrian crossings. The alternative also proposes landscaped buffer strips as well as wider sidewalks. There would be room for right turn bays and bus bays.
