CONSTRUCTION CONTINUING ON RAW WATER TRANSMISSION PIPELINE IN WESTSIDE BLVD:
La Sierrita now open; only one left turn lane and one thru lane/right turn lane open at NM 528 for eastbound traffic on Westside Blvd
Update as of Friday, April 1, 2022
As of Thursday, March 31, 2022, La Sierrita has reopened. Beginning Monday, April 4, eastbound traffic on Westside Blvd will have only one dedicated left-turn lane and one combination thru lane/right-turn lane at NM 528. Also, traffic will be shifted as far north as possible for several days, then shifted as far south as possible.
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.
- Traffic on 7 Bar Loop Rd and 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 Rd or 7 Bar Loop Rd via Golf Course Rd south to Driftwood Ave, then east on Driftwood Ave to 7 Bar Loop Rd.
TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR THE WEEK OF April 11-16, 2022:
Golf Course Rd will be CLOSED at Westside Blvd. The contractor will work two shifts, 20 hours a day, to get the work done so Golf Course Rd can be reopened as quickly as possible. More details will be provided next week.
Regular work hours are Monday-Saturday, 7am-5:30 pm, although the contractor may work longer hours or on Sundays as needed.
Project scheduled to be completed in summer of 2022.
