Diamond Drive Milling And Paving Moves To Night Hours Monday

Los Alamos County


Star Paving is working on mill and overlay of the roadway surface between Los Alamos Canyon Bridge (aka Omega Bridge) and Sandia Dr/Orange St with an anticipated finish date on or before High School begins August 14. Mill and overlay will then proceed to between Sandia/Orange and the roundabout at San Ildefonso Rd by Sept. 20. Final project completion is set for Sept. 27, weather permitting.

Asphalt milling and paving work the week of July 29 through Saturday, Aug. 3 will involve work only at night. Star Paving will begin at 6:00 p.m. and work throughout the night. Traffic will be restored with all lanes open for the morning commute before 7:00 a.m. With the constricted schedule to complete work between Omega Bridge and Sandia/Orange, night operations have been deemed to be more efficient than working through the day time work hour restrictions that were previously announced in Cone Zone last week.

Residents and businesses along Diamond Dr can expect to see and hear activities related to road construction overnight this week.

Two lanes of travel, one in each direction, will be maintained on Diamond Dr during working hours overnight.

If time permits, crews may elect to mill and repave the roundabout at San Ildefonso before Aug. 14. This will require the use of flaggers to direct traffic and result in some delays.
