Road closures set for holiday weekend

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Drivers can expect road closures over the Labor Day weekend, starting tonight, including a complete closure of Jefferson NE in both directions and westbound lanes of Paseo del Norte, transportation officials said.

The closures will be in effect from 7 p.m. today until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Westbound Paseo will be closed from Interstate 25 to Second Street. The closure includes the Paseo off-ramp at Jefferson.

Northbound and southbound Jefferson will be closed at Paseo.

Today, a single lane will be open at a time on the north frontage road of Paseo, where flaggers will direct traffic.

Several closures are planned on Sunday only. They are:

  • Eastbound Paseo del Norte will be closed from Second Street to I-25 from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • The southbound I-25 off-ramp at Paseo del Norte will be closed from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • The southbound I-25 frontage road will be closed at Alameda from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The closures will allow crews to prepare for a realignment of westbound traffic on Paseo del Norte beginning on Tuesday.
