ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The workshops will be held from July 9 to July 14 at the Los Duranes Community Center
The city will be hosting a week of workshops to consider concerns and improvements to the Rio Grande Boulevard corridor.
Speeding is the chief complaint residents have about the road, said City Councilor Debbie O’Malley, who represents the North Valley.
“It can get very dangerous,” O’Malley said. “…Putting signs up is not the answer.”
The city had been studying the possibility of a roundabout at Candelaria and Rio Grande when neighbors asked if the entire area could be looked at for traffic patterns and safety concerns, said Tom Menicucci, a policy analyst for the city of Albuquerque.
“There are severe crashes (in other areas) and speeding,” he said. “There is more capacity than it has traffic.”
