Star Paving’s crew is currently paving the intersection of DP Road and Trinity Drive. Work should be done by Friday and at that point, the flagging operation will be no longer be necessary.
Because of the tight logistics and constraints for crews to work at this intersection, no other detour alternatives are available. Construction work has to be done on portions of the intersection, one section at a time, while maintaining traffic flow through the intersection.
The westbound right lane closure traffic control between DP Rd and Knecht Street should be finished Thursday. This closure was required to build sidewalk and ADA ramps. Star Paving still has work to complete at the northeast and northwest corner of the intersection of Knecht Street and Trinity Drive.
Star Paving will be paving Thursday and Friday on the south side of NM502 and west of the Roundabout. Motorists are urged to watch for turning asphalt trucks and other heavy equipment in the area. Motorists are reminded of the speed limit of 25 mph in the work zone; speeding above 25 mph continues to be a safety issue for work crews in this area. Slow down, and be observant of traffic signs and traffic activity in the area.
