County: Oversized Load Transport Planned On NM502 Monday


Los Alamos County Traffic and Streets Crews, working in conjunction with Los Alamos Police Department, will assist with the transport of an oversized load Monday, Nov. 16. Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7 a.m, the transport company will be moving the load from the bottom of Totavi Hill, up NM502, west on Central Avenue, south on Oppenheimer, east on Trinity Drive to the destination of 278 DP Road.  

In the evening, the transport will leave Los Alamos between the hours of 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. They will exit DP road and head east through the new round-a-bout on NM 502 and proceed out of town on the Main Hill Road.

For the safety of the travelling public, Los Alamos Police Department will close the Main Hill during the morning and evening transports. To avoid delays, an alternative is to use the Truck Route, via NM 4 during this timeframe. Motorists should be cautious travelling near this oversized load.
