Work Begins On New Entrance to Del Norte High
Construction along westbound Montgomery will take 45-60 days
July 29, 2013
Work is scheduled to begin today on westbound Montgomery, just east of San Mateo, as Albuquerque Public Schools and the city of Albuquerque begin construction of a new entrance/exit to Del Norte High School.
The new entrance will be just east of the pedestrian bridge over Montgomery, where cars will enter, and then exit from the parking area and student drop-off onto westbound Montgomery.
During construction there will be periodic lane restrictions along westbound Montgomery. The sidewalk on the north side of the street and the pedestrian bridge over Montgomery also will be closed.
“The objective is to provide a new entrance/exit and improve traffic flow in front of the school by restricting left-hand turns onto eastbound Montgomery,” said APS Chief Operations Officer Brad Winter.
Altor Construction is the contractor for the project, which is expected to take between 45 and 60 days to complete.
