Cone Zone: Week Of July 29, 2019

first_imgCOUNTY News:The Public Works/Traffic Division provides the latest updates on the following projects:Diamond Drive Paving:Star Paving is working on mill and overlay of the roadway surface between Los Alamos Canyon Bridge (aka Omega Bridge) and Sandia Drive/Orange Street with an anticipated finish date on or before high school begins Aug. 14. Mill and overlay will then proceed to between Sandia/Orange and the roundabout at San Ildefonso Road by Sept. 20. Final project completion is set for Sept. 27, weather permitting.Asphalt milling and paving work the week of July 29 through Saturday, Aug. 3 will involve work only at night. Star Paving will begin at 6 p.m. and work throughout the night. Traffic will be restored with all lanes open for the morning commute before 7 a.m. With the constricted schedule to complete work between Omega Bridge and Sandia/Orange, night operations have been deemed to be more efficient than working through the day time work hour restrictions that were previously announced in Cone Zone last week.Residents and businesses along Diamond Dr can expect to see and hear activities related to road construction overnight this week.Two lanes of travel, one in each direction, will be maintained on Diamond Dr during working hours overnight.If time permits, crews may elect to mill and repave the roundabout at San Ildefonso before Aug. 14. This will require the use of flaggers to direct traffic and result in some delays.Work will begin Monday at Los Alamos Canyon Bridge (aka Omega Bridge) and proceed north to the San Ildefonso roundabout, with a goal to complete work in front of UNM-LA and the High School before school/college resumes for the Fall session Aug. 14. On-going Manhole Repairs – Ponderosa Estates in Los Alamos: Crews continue adjusting manholes in Ponderosa Estates along Aspen Drive, Sumac Lane and Maple Drive. Work continues through the end of this week. The concrete being used is a high strength mix and requires a cure time; therefore, residents are urged to avoid driving over these manholes for the first few days after they are poured. Traffic control will be set up daily in several locations along the project route and residents are urged to use caution when driving through and walking near these work zones. Work hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.Roadway StripingWork is focused in the area of local school zones in Los Alamos over the next two weeks. All crosswalks are being pressure washed and painted in the early morning hours; no traffic impacts expected but motorists are asked to slow down and use caution in these areas.Road striping in White Rock has been suspended until after school begins in mid-August.Questions on the above projects? E-mail [email protected], or call 505.662.8150.Other road construction projects:N.M. 502 Roundabout and Road Reconstruction (NMDOT project):Work continues 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph. N.M. 502 (Trinity Drive) east-bound traffic is being detoured to 4th Street and Central Avenue. After a full stop, motorists should turn right (east) and travel through the construction zone to continue east-bound out of Los Alamos on N.M. 502. West-bound N.M. 502 traffic entering Los Alamos and approaching the roundabout construction zone is being detoured onto Central Avenue; continue west to Knecht Street (or alternatively, continue to the traffic light at 15th Street) then turn left to return to Trinity Drive. There is only one lane of traffic in each direction on Central Avenue.Please slow down, use caution and expect delays in this area, especially during peak commute times.Traffic advisories from NMDOT are available on and motorists are asked to check the site for updates on this project as it proceeds.TA-21 Clean Up Project – DP Road (N3B project):No change in truck traffic on DP Road from last week’s report. Clean-up work on the LANL TA-21 Site at the far eastern end of DP Road continues. Large trucks carrying away demolition debris containers will be exiting DP Road at an average of approximately three trucks per day. Motorists are asked to be alert for trucks exiting; use caution when entering or exiting DP Road, as this area is near the N.M. 502 Road Reconstruction project.last_img read more

Creating affordable, sustainable workspaces

first_imgHowever, with the construction industry generating around 120m tonnes of waste every year, this activity is creating a legacy of environmental challenges for years to come, as well as new buildings.At Bruntwood, we are passionate about recycling buildings. Not only does it make economic sense but it’s an environmentally friendly way of doing business. Whether it is a 1980s office block or a grade II-listed building, we look at it as an opportunity to develop and refurbish it.Take Citylabs, Manchester’s former Royal Eye Hospital, for example. We kept the original frontage of the building and made it fit for purpose by adding to it. If we hadn’t salvaged the site, the likelihood is that someone else would have demolished it to make way for something new.Liverpool is a prime example of how this ethos is working for us. The city is full of hidden gems and we find these and strip them back – from original parquet flooring to an old bricked-up fireplace.There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ approach when fitting out and refurbishing office space – there needs to be flexibility and, more importantly, innovation.As the creative, digital and media service sector thrives, with it comes an increased demand for offices with a difference.This demand has re-ignited the need to think like an SME. We create affordable, sustainable workspaces using the foundations of the existing building.Cladding walls, exposing original wooden floors or stripping out the suspended ceilings are all ways of providing unique office space without the hefty price tag or impact to the environment.It isn’t simply about making profit, it’s about unearthing the history of a building and becoming part of the fabric within the cities we work. Our goal is to lead the way and encourage people to take the same approach.Colin Sinclair is director of property marketing at Bruntwoodlast_img read more

Player has 30% chance of signing for Man United, part of…

first_imgThese are the teams who have been strongly linked with Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella, whose future has become a great source of speculation for many Italian newspapers.Looking at where many footballers could end up, Gazzetta dello Sport give us a lovely pie chart, making it clear he will be leaving the Sardinia-based side, but only in the summer.His destination could be one of three clubs, with Inter in the lead at 40%, followed by both Manchester United and Napoli on 30% each.Embed from Getty ImagesGazzetta explain that scouts from the Premier League side have brought back ‘excellent reports’ when watching the 21-year-old, and Barella’s name features on their ‘shortlist’ of players for the ‘new leaf’ being turned at Old Trafford.Chelsea, who were said to be very close to signing Barella in January at one point, are completely forgotten, suggesting they’ve moved on for now.To be fair, few clubs, even Premier League ones, were going to pay €50m midway through the Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Men In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndo First it was Manchester United, followed by Liverpool.

Apoel seek to overturn Champions league deficit

first_imgApoel have their backs against the wall as they try to overturn a 3-1 deficit against Lithuanian champions FK Suduva at the GSP stadium in Nicosia on Tuesday evening in the second leg of their Champions League first qualifying round tie.The Cyprus champions are no strangers to adversity as they have a tendency of living on the edge in most of their early qualifying games.Last year they scraped past footballing minnows F91 Dudelange of Luxembourg while in the third qualifying round against FC Viitorul of Romania they went through thanks to three goals in added time.Their Lithuanian opponents are no footballing giants but Apoel showed huge defensive frailties in the first leg, conceding three goals in a disastrous 10-minute spell and they will need to improve in that department if they are to stand a chance of progressing to the second round.Their manager Bruno Baltazar is certain to make a number of changes, two of them enforced, as midfielder Tomas de Vincenti and Brazilian defender Caju picked up injuries in that game.Cypriot defender Nicolas Ioannou should replace Caju at left-back while experienced defender Carlao is expected to start the game at the expense of Giorgos Merkis who had a torrid first game.Fit again Ghayas Zahid will certainly start the game in midfield replacing de Vincenti, while at least two more places are up for grabs.Mickael Pote is pushing hard to lead the attack with Guilherme Dellatorre dropping to the substitute’s bench while there is also a question mark over who will be the last line of defence. Goalkeeper Boy Waterman came under fierce criticism following last week’s game and Rafael Romo is waiting in the wings to grab the chance to establish himself as first-choice goalkeeper if he is finally given the nod.The Lithuanians arrived in Cyprus on Tuesday morning in confident mood but they are wary of Apoel’s true potential, especially in front of their vociferous supporters, expected to surpass the 10,000 mark.They will also face very high temperatures, even though the game does not kick-off until 8pm.last_img read more
