By Special to the Monitor

  The Los Alamos County Transportation Division will turn off the power to various streetlights to enhance the viewing of holiday farolitos. The streetlights will be turned off December 24 and 25 and will be restored on December 26.

  For safety purposes, the Transportation Division requests that all vehicles and trailers be moved to off-street parking during the full period that lights will be off. If this is not possible, it is recommended that the vehicles and trailers be silhouetted by farolitos. Due to the limited sight visibility during the viewing, drivers are requested to travel the viewing areas at 15 miles per hour.

  The following streets will be affected: Barranca Road, Los Pueblos (to include side streets), San Juan, Totavi, Navajo Road, all on Barranca Mesa; Camino Redondo, Camino Medio, Cumbres Patio, all on North Mesa; Canada Way, Canada Circle, Balboa Drive, Alhambra Drive, Barcelona Avenue, Brighton Drive and Briston Place, all in White Rock.
