  • Costlier holiday travel off to fast start across U.S.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Holiday travel got off to a soggy start in parts of the country Wednesday as millions of Americans undeterred by costlier gas and airfare set out for Thanksgiving celebrations, but few major problems were reported.
    About 42.5 million people are expected to drive, fly or ride trains to their Thanksgiving destinations, according to travel tracker AAA. That’s the highest number since the start of the recession, despite an average 20 percent increase in travel costs.

  • Ice Rink, West Road to open Monday

    County officials announced Tuesday that West Road will re-open from Diamond Drive to the County Ice Rink on Monday, Nov. 28 instead of the projected opening date of Dec. 1. The earlier opening date is the result of coordination and response efforts by LANL and County Pavement and Utilities’ crews since mid-October.
    The watershed above the Los Alamos Reservoir near Pajarito Ski Resort was badly burned in the Las Conchas wildfire in June, increasing runoff into the canyon that subsequently caused severe erosion damage to West Road and the surrounding area. The road is owned by the DOE.
