To the Los Alamos County Council and the Transportation Board:
I drove through this roundabout on Central Avenue at 8th Street in Albuquerque during rush hour at 5:15 p.m., on a weekday last month, while pulling a large trailer with my large pickup:
I came in from the west and headed east on Central Avenue. My observations include:
•Central narrows from four lanes to two lanes. That was no problem (good signage) even though heavy traffic had to merge and I was driving a 35-40 foot rig.
•Traffic was “queued” back about 10 vehicles, but kept moving at about 10 mph.
