Background and history. As you may know, N.M. 502 between Central Avenue and Airport Road, presents significant obstacles and hazards to traffic flow and pedestrians. It operates at peak times with considerable congestion, particularly during the evening commute, when traffic is either crawling or stop-and-go.
The morning commute operates below the current speed limit due to congestion. Pedestrian service is inadequate, even though some points of obvious access lie along this segment.
Los Alamos County has proven amazingly dysfunctional in arriving at a preliminary design for this area. In a period of more than 5 years, at major expense in time and money, various proposals have been developed. I think the best of these was a 2007 agreement jointly approved by LAC and New Mexico, but that has been rejected by more recent LAC planning efforts.
