University Union 2018

A lane will be closed Wednesday, April 4 until Friday, April 6 at east University Avenue and east Union Avenue.

The lane closure is needed to allow City of Las Cruces Water Section crews to undergo Insta Valve training. The affected areas will include the outside eastbound lane on University Avenue, and the outside southbound lane from El Paseo Road to east Union Avenue.

Access to residences and businesses will be maintained. Motorists who want to avoid possible delays should seek an alternate route.

No disruption in water service is anticipated. However, if an outage does occur residents and businesses in the area may notice discolored water due to iron and manganese deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting for water lines to clear before washing laundry.

The discoloration should disappear within 24-hours. If it does not, outside and cold-water faucets should be flushed for five minutes. If the discoloration persists, call the City, at 575/526-0500, for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
