The truck route was closed this morning after Manny L'Esperance, Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Emergency Management and Response, said a truck going through about 8:30 a.m. triggered a dog alert.


EMR and other LANL teams swept the truck, which is owned by a contractor and was previously used to haul explosives.


Electronic message boards were activated to direct employees to use NM 502 (the main hill road) or Pajarito Road.


Assistant Fire Chief/Fire Marshal Mike Thompson said this morning that Los Alamos firefighters were on standby at the scene as a precaution.
