Concerned about changes to Trinity Drive

Dear Editor,

I was dismayed recently to hear that the county is proposing a narrowing or “redesign” of Trinity Drive. The proposed changes, as I understand it, would reduce Trinity to one lane in each direction with a center turning lane /median with concrete cutouts similar to Central. 

I am gravely concerned about the safety and practicality of this plan, especially as we already face a growing LANL population causing ever-longer traffic backups going off the hill during commuting hours. Since Pajarito Road was closed to the public many years ago, an increasing pressure on traffic leading off the front hill road and down the truck route has routinely made my commute to White Rock from the hospital take 40+ minutes during peak traffic hours.

Narrowing Trinity would further add to the commute backup and congestion. This makes no sense from the standpoint of a growing workforce at LANL. From a safety perspective, how will emergency vehicles have right of way with this new design?
