UNM Parking and Transportation Services has issued a heavy traffic notice for main campus starting on Friday, Dec. 1 through the weekend.  

Events include, but are not limited to:

  • Friday, Dec. 1 - UNM’s Hanging of the Greens
  • Saturday, Dec. 2 - Twinkle Light Parade, and Popejoy Presents: The Nutcracker Ballet
  • Sunday, Dec. 3 - Popejoy Presents: The Nutcracker Ballet

Girard Blvd. closure
On Saturday, Dec. 2 from 3 p.m. until the conclusion of the Twinkle Light Parade, Girard Blvd. will be closed between Central Ave. and Lomas Blvd. 

Campus parking
Public access to campus parking will be closed during the parade. R and S (Lomas Parking Structure) permit holders will be allowed to access their respective lots by way of Campus-to-Redondo or Stanford-to-Redondo Dr. UNM parking permit holders will need to show their parking permit to enforcement officers in order to access certain parking lots. 

Saturday’s event will require the closure of parking spaces and areas in and around the R zone and specifically spaces located in the R-Central/Girard lot. During this partial closure, and only on Saturday, Dec. 2, R permits will be allowed to overflow into the J lot.

Due to expected heavy traffic and construction activities along the Central-side of the main campus, commuters may want to take a different route to and from campus, allow for extra travel time and plan accordingly.
