I'm sure many of you get the email updates on the Lead / Coal Project... so I've not been posting every little thing (like when they are installing curbs, or laying asphalt) but this is big (you can tell because the headline is in red):
Yale Avenue is scheduled to reopen by 10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 22 from north of Avenida Cesar Chavez to north of Coal Avenue. Work will continue on Garfield and on Bell near Yale for the next 1-2 weeks.
From 8 p.m. Sunday, March 27 through approximately April 26-May 11, 2011, Carlisle will be closed to ALL traffic from north of Coal Avenue SE to south of Garfield Avenue SE in order for crews to install large storm drainage infrastructure. Traffic is being detoured to Lead and to Girard. For more information or a detour map, visit www.leadandcoal.com.
ACTIVITIES SCHEDULED FOR CLOSURE OF CARLISLE:
March 28-April 1 – Remove asphalt paving from Carlisle, begin installation of storm drainage trunk line and lateral lines
April 4-8 – Continue installation of storm drainage trunk line and lateral lines, begin installation of inlets for storm drainage
During the planned closure of Carlisle from north of Coal to Garfield, beginning March 28, 2011, Bus Route 16/18 “The Bug” will have a special detour:
Will head south on Carlisle, then east on Lead, then south on Hermosa, then west on Ridgecrest/Burton, the south on Carlisle.
Will head north on Carlisle, then west on Burton, then north on Amherst, then east on Lead, then north on Carlisle.
Temporary bus stops will be located just north of Garfield and just south of Lead on Amherst and on Hermosa. Regular bus stops located along Carlisle at Ridgecrest, between Garfield and Coal and south of Lead will be closed while construction is taking place on Carlisle.
These detours and temporary bus stops are expected to be in place through the closure of Carlisle, scheduled to last approximately 30-45 days (through April 27-May 12, 2011). For more information, please contact the City of Albuquerque Transit Department atwww.cabq.gov/transit or call 243-7433.
