Bernalillo County’s Parks and Recreation Department began a major renovation of two medians near Alameda Boulevard and 4th Street N.W. on Monday, April 22 at 9 a.m.
Project will last four weeks.
Traffic on Alameda Boulevard will be impacted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday from April 22 through May 17. One inside lane will be closed in both the eastbound and westbound lanes during this time.
Crews will be working from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. only. Crews will leave early if ahead of schedule in an effort to minimize impact on the area.
The project calls for removing the old landscaping in these two medians and replacing it with new trees, drought resistant plants, and a state-of-the-art irrigation system that will save water and money.
“This is a good project for the North Valley, the scenic northern gateway to Bernalillo County,” Parks and Recreation Director Ed Chismar says. “I’m confident this project will result in a more beautiful Alameda neighborhood and long-term cost savings with better irrigation and landscaping.”
The budget for the project is $40,000.
