Commuters traveling home on State Road 4 should expect a slight delay on their way home.
A controlled burn conducted by the National Park Service  and the Fire Learning Network is predicted to obscure visibility, according to Terry McDermott, Public Affairs Specialist for the Valles Caldera Trust.
Escort vehicles will be waiting to guide cars through the smoke, according to McDermott.  
“Traffic may be held up until we get a group of cars to guide through the smoke,” he said.
The controlled burn will take place south N.M. 4 near mile marker 30, and is expected to continue through Wednesday.
