Unser Reconstruction update

posted Nov 28, 2014, 8:22 PM by Ken Tuley
The Unser Reconstruction project that was initially proposed in April 2009 is going to start early 2015.  The project was delayed because the monies were used for the Paseo/Jefferson Project.  Below is a portion of the announcement sent out last week from the City of Albuquerque.  Please note the meeting on December 9th will be meeting #3 and is an informational meeting only.  The first two meetings were about design and that phase was completed over two years ago.  Unser will not be widened for this project other than maybe to add additional turn lanes at Unser and Montano.  The median will be reduced in width to accommodate a majority of the improvements.   Unser will remain two lanes in both the north and south bound directions.  The main scope of the project is to add turn lanes, bike lanes and sidewalks.  Also the now gravel walking path from Bogart to Vulcan will be improved to a blacktopped walking/bike path. 
After completion of the Unser Reconstruction, the Unser median from Montano to Dellyne will be landscaped.  Similar to the recent improvements to Golf Course Rd.  The landscaping design is not completed and there will be a meeting on this sometime in the future.  I have requested someone from the city attend the December 9th meeting to discuss the future landscaping project.
If you have question, let me know and I will try to answer them.

From Dellyne to Montaño

The City of Albuquerque is planning to start construction on pedestrian, bicycle and
roadway improvements on Unser Blvd from Dellyne to Montaño. The project will
include on-street bicycle lanes, additional bicycle trail facilities, sidewalk connectivity
improvements and signal upgrades. Bicycle lanes will be added in each direction. The
purpose of this meeting is to inform the neighboring public of the details of the project
and their potential impacts during construction.
