It could have been a PR nightmare, but the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority prevented that from happening. The Water Utility Authority was planning to close part of University Blvd. southbound early this week for construction, but after checking with the University decided to delay the closure until after the 14-thousand fans expected to pack the pit for the TCU game on Wednesday night cleared the area.
That means southbound University between Hazeldine and Basehart Road will narrow to a single lane on Thursday. The construction is only supposed to last for one day.
Thanks to the Water Utility Authority for thinking ahead, and not trapping Lobo fans in a supersize traffic snarl.
