Workshops To Be Held To Discuss Rio Grande Boulevard Traffic Concerns

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.”

The current Rio Grande Boulevard Corridor Plan was adopted in 1989 over concerns about potential loss of historic, residential and landscape characteristics, which includes the Old Town and Duranes neighborhoods and parts of the North Valley.

The meetings are scheduled from July 9 to 14 at the Los Duranes Community Center, 2920 Leopoldo NW.

The meetings include: a kick off at 6 p.m. July 9; design session from 9 a.m. to noon July 10; open house 11:30 a.m. July 12; and presentation of the work-in-progress at 6 p.m. July 14.

Menicucci said residents can go to whichever workshop they want, provide input, then hear about the proposals at the end of the week that will go toward a formal plan.
