Looking forward to expanded shopping opportunities may seem small compensation when it comes to negotiating construction on Trinity Drive right now.
One lane of traffic on Trinity Drive is closed for installation of new water, gas and power lines. The infrastructure upgrade was slated to be part of the N.M. 502 project, but as part of its agreement with the county, Smith’s agreed to install the lines in order to forestall further construction blocking the newly-opened Marketplace store next year.
“The county worked with their design engineers on what we wanted to have installed, meaning the utilities portion of it. And we’re inspecting that work as it’s being installed,” Project Manager Brian Aragon said. “People are calling in concerns and we’re following up with what we can.”
Smith’s will also be replacing curbs and gutters and installing storm drain inlets that will tie into an upgraded storm drain system.
Los Alamos County Public Works Department will be replacing the current storm drainpipe running from Knecht to the discharge into DP Canyon with a larger one. That work will require lane closures on the north side of Trinity next spring.
Smith’s anticipates finishing its portion of the work in early November.
