On Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Dirk Holtman, TLC project manager for the Pinos Altos Road reconstruction between Silver Heights Boulevard (U.S. 180) and 32nd Street, said the contractors are on a different schedule from the original plan.
He introduced others who were there, Brian P. Torres, project manager for New Mexico Department of Transportation, District 1; Ami Evans, NMDOT District 1 public information officer; and Grey Meyers, TLC superintendent.
"We are just now starting near McDonald's on the south end of the road," Holtman said. "We have done some storm drain work. We did the piece down Kimberly. Most of the work we're doing now is between Kimberly and Pine streets. We are starting the water line work from McDonald's to Kimberly and then Kimberly to Pine. We have to do that before we do the storm drain work."
