Beginning Tuesday, March 8 and lasting for about two (2) weeks, through March 22, 2022, crews will close 7 Bar Loop from just south of Westside Blvd to Leno Rd. During this closure, residents will be able to use La Sierrita Rd as a detour (see map above). Access will be maintained to all residences.
Construction is continuing on Westside from Golf Course Rd to NM 528 (see map below).
The following traffic impacts remain in place:
- Westbound traffic on Westside Blvd is reduced to one lane between NM 528 and Golf Course Rd.
- Eastbound traffic on Westside Blvd is reduced to one lane between Golf Course Rd and Grande Blvd. Eastbound traffic on Westside Blvd shifts to the south at Grande Blvd and has two lanes available as well as a dedicated right-hand turn lane to head southbound on NM 528.
- Traffic on La Sierrita Rd is able to turn right and head eastbound on Westside Blvd, but is NOT able to turn left and head westbound on Westside Blvd. Motorists can access westbound Westside Blvd by taking 7 Bar Loop Rd south to Driftwood Ave, heading west on Driftwood Ave, then north on Golf Course Rd. Westbound motorists on Westside Blvd can access La Sierrita or 7 Bar Loop Rd via Golf Course Rd south to Driftwood Ave, then east on Driftwood Ave to 7 Bar Loop Rd.
Regular work hours are Monday-Saturday 7am-5:30 pm although the contractor may work longer hours or on Sundays as needed.
