Busy intersections getting makeoversNovember 28th, 2012 at 2:22 pm by Bill Diven under Community Affairs
Month-long projects are underway to replace the asphalt at two Albuquerque intersections.
On the West Side the makeover covers Central Avenue and Coors Boulevard while in the Northeast Heights it’s Carlisle Boulevard and Candelaria Road being rebuilt.
The asphalt is at the end of its useful life, and the concrete is expected to last significantly longer.
The work includes replacing some curbs, gutters and sidewalks and installing ADA-compliant ramps at the corners.
During construction traffic will be rerouted to allow contract crews to work on one quadrant of the intersection at a time.
The city’s Department of Municipal Development reports the two projects will cost a total of $1.8 million borrowed by issuing general obligation bonds.
