  • Paving begins in Eastern area

    The Eastern Area Phase 2 project is inching toward completion.
    RMCI will begin paving Monday on Myrtle, followed by 9th, Canyon and 5th.
    Paving operations should be completed on or before Nov. 2 assuming there are no weather or mechanical delays. Work is anticipated to start at 8:30 a.m. each morning.
    Do not park vehicles in the street in the active construction areas.
    RMCI staff will be on hand to assist motorists with vehicular access while paving is ongoing.
    However, there may be delays, especially if the paving operation is crossing a driveway or an intersection. Motorists should not attempt to drive over the hot, fresh pavement until the contractor has removed barricades.
    In addition to the paving operations, RMCI will be constructing a concrete valley gutter across Myrtle at 15th Street.
    Once built, the fresh concrete must cure for seven days before vehicles can be driven over the valley gutter.
    Therefore, Myrtle at 15th Street will be closed starting 8:30 a.m. Monday to Monday, Nov. 5. Detours will be established to direct motorists east on Myrtle.
    Residential access and routine deliveries, as well as trash/recycling collection will be maintained.

  • Eastern US braces for dangerous superstorm

    NEW YORK (AP) — Big cities from Washington to Boston buttoned up on Sunday against the onslaught of a superstorm that could menace 50 million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation, with forecasters warning New York could be in particular peril.

    "The time for preparing and talking is about over," Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate warned as Hurricane Sandy made its way up the Atlantic on a collision course with two other weather systems that could turn it into one of the most fearsome storms on record in the U.S. "People need to be acting now."

    Airlines canceled more than 5,000 flights and Amtrak began suspending train service across the Northeast. New York and Philadelphia moved to shut down their subways, buses and trains Sunday night and announced that schools would be closed on Monday. Boston, Washington and Baltimore also called off school.

  • Watchdog groups call for NNSA chief to resign

    National Nuclear Security Administrator Thom D’Agostino has come under fire after revelations surfaced regarding construction cost overruns on a security project at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

    At least two watchdog groups called for D'Agostino to resign Friday following the news that a seven-year $213 million project at Technical Area 55 to upgrade the security perimeter for nuclear weapons plutonium facilities at LANL has been beset by delays and possibly up to $25 million in cost overruns.

    “We call on NNSA Administrator Tom D’Agostino to step down given the agency’s chronic failures across the national nuclear weapons complex,” Jay Coghlan of Nuclear Watch New Mexico said Friday night. “And if he doesn’t do the right thing and resign then we call upon the in-coming president to not reappoint Mr. D’Agostino for more failed leadership of a dysfunctional agency.”
