Albuquerque sees requests for site visitors revisions

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – The folks who live tucked away on a small block in an Albuquerque neighborhood have been complaining about speeders for years, now the city is doing something about it.

“We’re here on Evansdale and 52nd Street, which is known as the Dead Man’s Curve,” said Lan Sena, Albuquerque City Councilor.

The block-length street near West Central has been a problem for years as speeders land in people’s yards. During a press conference Thursday morning, Sena announced that they had finally found a solution: two new speed limits.

“These are the best ways to slow cars entering corners and hopefully keep the cars on the road,” said Timothy Brown, director of transportation for the city of Albuquerque.

Councilor Sena says she has received dozens of complaints about this street and countless others in her district. Brown says they get 100+ neighborhood inquiries each year for work on slowing down razors. Local residents begging for a solution to traffic problems in their neighborhood and hoping for stop signs, speed limits, roundabouts or median strips to keep through traffic out.

Of all the inquiries they receive in a year, only about ten neighborhoods see a solution. This year Evansdale is one of them. Many of these requests go nowhere because they apply to roads that are considered arterial roads or are intended for heavy traffic.
