Trinity work to last three weeks

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Orange cones dotted the street Thursday, turning Trinity Drive into more of an obstacle course, than a road.

The road was narrowed down to one lane to allow Department of Transportation crews to work on milling and resurfacing the road. The work is expected to last three weeks, with the drivable path of NM502 changing on a regular basis.

‘It’s difficult at the moment, but it’s a very good thing to have them maintaining the road,” Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman said. When asked how long it had been since the NMDOT last did major maintenance work on the road, Zimmerman said he’s been in Los Alamos 19 years and does not recall the NMDOT ever having done maintenance of this magnitude.

However, he did say they have done some striping work and they’ve provided patching materials the county uses to fill potholes. He also said two inlets by Timber Ridge were replaced about three or four years ago.
