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.
