Motorists can expect minor delays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday and short duration temporary closures during non-peak hours at the east end of the project in the existing 2-lane section of the roadway using flagging operation.

Please make the request no later than when passing the ball fields on North Mesa, so the operator may prepare for the left turn into Tsikumu Village. The bus will follow the same path and use the same bus stop as on the inbound trip. For more information call (505) 661-7433.
