Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department to conduct DWI checkpoints, saturation patrols this weekend

NM DOT announces two major weekend construction closures around the Big I

This weekend will see the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department conducting saturation patrols and checkpoints throughout the county, with deputies on the lookout for aggressive driving, seatbelt use, proper child safety restraints, valid insurance and registration and driving under the influence.

These patrols and checkpoints begin today and will continue through Saturday, August 27th. The BCSO asks local media to make the public aware of their presence in the hopes of deterring these preventable driving practices.

Beginning at 9pm this evening, according to the New Mexico Department of Transportation, the I-25 Northbound exit ramp at Lomas will be closed, as will the I-25 Northbound flyover ramp to Eastbound I-40. Detours will be posted near these work zones.

As always, avoiding a DWI is in motorists' hands.

BCSO Conducting DWI Checkpoints and Saturation Patrols Today, Aug 12th Thru Saturday, August 13th

Construction-Related Lane Closures Around the Big I Aug. 12th to Aug. 15th

The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office will be be conducting saturation patrols this weekend, looking for people driving under the influence and driving aggressively. Checkpoints will be set up in the North Valley to further check driver's insurance compliance, seatbelt compliance as well as child safety restraints in vehicles.

These checkpoints and saturation patrols are in effect thru Saturday Aug. 13th.

Let us all take some responsibility for bringing down our state's drunk driving numbers. This can be accomplished with greater public awareness, in conjunction with more effective enforcement by local law organizations. Fundamentally, drivers can avoid trouble by designating a driver, driving respectfully, buckling your seat belts and knowing when to find alternate carriage home from any party or show if you've tied one on.

There are also some concomitant construction projects affecting the Big I area from Aug, 12 thru Aug. 15th. As Follows:

I-25 Southbound bridge over Menaul will have right lane closures.

I-40 Eastbound over University Blvd (east of the Big I) will have various lanes closed.

If you are heading north on I-25 to eastbound I-40: left lane will be closed during this time.

If in doubt as to your ability to drive, CALL A TAXI.
