Los Alamos County Public Works has contracted with Albuquerque Asphalt, Inc. to perform pavement preservation on San Ildefonso Road on North Mesa, and San Ildefonso Road/Barranca Road on Barranca Mesa. This information was presented at the Public Meeting conducted during the regularly scheduled Transportation Board Meeting in June.  

Project Scope: Removal of one inch of existing asphalt surface and install of new asphalt surface.

July 17 – The project will begin on the North Mesa portion of San Ildefonso Road and end on North Mesa Road. A 550-foot section of North Mesa Road will also be included in this phase.  

July 24 – The Barranca Mesa portion of San Ildefonso and Barranca Road will begin on San Ildefonso Road just north of the roundabout ending at the intersection of Barranca Road and Navajo Road. 
The anticipated completion date for the project is Aug. 2.

Hours: Albuquerque Asphalt, Inc. has a Noise Ordinance Waiver Permit for this project allowing crews to work from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Traffic Impact: To minimize disruption, Albuquerque Asphalt, Inc crews will notify and coordinate with affected residents on certain construction logistics, such as parking restrictions. They will also ensure ingress and egress to residents’ homes as much as possible. In addition, services such as mail delivery, trash and recycling collection, school bus, and emergency services will always be maintained.  Residents can expect large equipment, and construction noise. Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use caution around construction activities and avoid entering the work zone. The road will be open to traffic with a work zone flagging operation including use of a pilot car.
