NMDOT releases Chimayó walk plans

-A A +A

New Mexico Transportation Department’s maintenance and construction crews are preparing for safe walking areas along various New Mexico highways for the annual Good Friday Pilgrimage to the Santurario de Chimayó.
“This event has been a tradition for many generations, and the New Mexico Department of Transportation is working together with local entities to provide a safe walking area for this year’s event,” said Transportation Secretary Alvin Dominguez. “The Department is requesting both walkers and motorists exercise extreme caution so that everyone is able to safely participate in the annual pilgrimage.”
For those in Los Alamos, who wish to make the pilgrimage, they are asked to meet at  Immaculate Heart of Mary or St. Joseph’s (White Rock) parking lot at 7 a.m., where they will carpool to Pojoaque to begin the walk.
In the past, up to 50 people from Los Alamos have made the trek to Chimayó.
 The Transportation Department suggests pedestrians wear light-colored clothing or reflective gear during early morning and evening hours.  
Local law enforcement will have a limited number of glow sticks for participants.
Maintenance crews have begun sweeping operations along typical routes to the Santurario.
