Diamond Drive Phase 4 2011
Canyon / Diamond: On June 13, the contractor will re-open Canyon after 8:30 am.
Northbound from the Bridge – No left turns onto West or Trinity; use Sandia. No left or right onto Canyon Road; use University.  The right turn slip lane onto eastbound Trinity is closed; motorists in the right lane must turn right onto eastbound Trinity at the signalized intersection. The left lane continues through the work zone.
Southbound from University Drive – Expect two southbound lanes south of Sandia.  The left lane is a left turn lane at Trinity Drive.  The right lane is the through lane for traffic crossing the bridge, as well as right turns onto University, Trinity, and West Road.  Left turns onto West Road are okay, however, the dedicated left turn lane will no longer be present.
Transit: The southbound Park & Ride bus stop between Trinity and West Road is open. The northbound Park & Ride bus stop has moved from in front of the hospital further east on Trinity, in front of the pink house. The southbound Atomic City Transit bus stop on Diamond Drive at the Lemon Lot is open. The bus stop north of Canyon near the High School Jock Lot continues to be closed; use the bus stop near Orange. The first two Atomic City Transit stops on both sides of west Trinity will be closed; use the bus stop on 43rd St. Additional temporary stops will be established near the Fairway trailhead.
Canyon Road Curb and Gutter Work
Pavement crews will be performing curb and gutter replacement; expect shoulder work and some flagging with short delays.
NM502 Truck Traffic (Airport Runway Extension Project)
Expect slow moving and turning truck traffic on westbound NM502. As the trucks climb the hill, its speed slows to 20-25 mph and is further reduced when the trucks make the turn onto airport property. Do not tailgate, do not pass in the turn lanes, pay attention to the traffic ahead of you, and expect 5-10 minute delays.
