Due to construction for the Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) project, contractors will close the south side of the Stanford and Central Ave. intersection to vehicle traffic beginning the first day of class, Monday, Aug. 21.

Travel through the south side of this intersection will not be permitted for vehicle traffic. As a result, commuters will have to find an alternative route. Temporary pedestrian access will remain open for the duration of this project. Please use caution when in this area and follow all posted pedestrian routes.

According to the notification document, the work will include road pavement cuts, sidewalk construction, wheelchair ramp construction and curb cuts. The work is scheduled to continue until Sept. 15, 2017, and at that time, the intersection will be reopened.
