NM502 Road Closure At Bottom Of Main Hill Road From 6 a.m. To 8 a.m. Saturday For Excavator Transport

Los Alamos County


On Saturday morning, N3B will be transporting a large excavator from TA-21 at the end of DP Road to Trinity Drive, crossing Marimac Plaza’s parking lot to Central Avenue, then east down NM502 to the Truck Route, beginning at 6:00 a.m. They will stop at the Truck Route Inspection Station for inspection, then resume transport after 8:00 a.m, traveling into White Rock on NM4 to Pajarito Road.

Los Alamos Police Department LAPD officers will be assisting on site to close NM502 at the bottom of the Main Hill Road during these morning hours to allow the excavator to move safely down the Main Hill Road to NM4 and the Truck Route Inspection Station.

Early morning traffic should avoid Main Hill Road and the Truck Route near the inspection station during this time frame of 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 24.  The move of the excavator through White Rock on NM4 should conclude at approximately 9:00 a.m. Use caution and allow extra time if traveling in any of these areas on Saturday morning.

A second move of two excavators is expected to occur in a similar traffic pattern on Saturday, Sept. 7. Because two excavators are being moved, the closure time may be longer.
