Stop the Bypass Road
A new road is poised to open (see photo on p. 3 of Nov. 8 Los Alamos Monitor). From the top of West Road (near where it used to intersect State Road 4) you will be able to travel west, directly to the ski hill, bypassing LANL’s western guard station. DOE built this highway through TA-62, along a former road that accessed a large water tank.
The workmen are itching to build a new section of highway that will continue this bypass to the east, enabling motorists to avoid the eastern LANL guard station. This proposed road will eliminate the need to use West Road as a bypass, with its steep, hairpin turns and passing the ice-skating rink. Slated to be built by the county for $12 million, the road will continue from the top of West Road due east, skirt the northern edge of the research park building and intersect with the southern tip of Los Alamos Canyon bridge.
