East Jemez Road lane closures near the entrance of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) will resume Friday, July 19, and continue through to Saturday night.

Drivers will be unable to get to Los Alamos via the truck route and should use the NM502/Main Hill Road instead.

Full lane closures will start at 6 p.m. Friday and continue through Saturday night, July 20, weather permitting.

The water line replacement is part of a $34.5 million Supplemental Environmental Projects settlement agreement between the New Mexico Environment Department and the U.S. Department of Energy following the February 2014 drum breach incident at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in Carlsbad, N.M.
