Recently riddled with orange cones and somewhat confusing lane closures, Trinity Drive now sports a new, ebony surface thanks to the New Mexico Department of Transportation.
The smooth surface has been transformed from the sometimes-bumpy ride that users were accustomed to into a sleek roadway free of potholes. NMDOT work crews began the project on July 13 and were expected to complete it within three weeks. So far, they seem to be on schedule, as the milling and paving portions of the project have been completed, with the exception of a few small areas.
Temporary tabs are still in place dividing the lanes, however they will be removed once the striping work begins. The striping work is expected to begin soon. “The striping and pavement markings cannot be started until a couple of weeks after paving,” Public Works Director Kyle Zimmerman said. “The asphalt needs to let off gas and cure for a couple of weeks before the markings are applied. If it is done too soon, the markings will turn brown,” he explained.
Zimmerman said the layout of the pavements markings will take some time and will involve some more lane closures, to protect the people doing the work.
