Construction Begins on Louisiana Dividers
On November 7, 2012 the Parks and Recreation Park Design Team, along with representatives from the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, met with residents who live near the Louisiana Dividers to discuss renovation options. The Louisiana Dividers are aging; the irrigation system is outdated and inefficient, thereby creating an unacceptable amount of fugitive water fines assessed to the Parks and Recreation Department.
The Parks and Recreation and Water Utility Representatives met with 23 residents, heard comments and suggestions, and the Parks and Recreation Design Team provided two renovation options.

Construction has begun on the Louisiana Dividers. One lane on either side of the medians on which they are working will be barricaded.
Project completion is scheduled for 10 weeks, estimated completion in April of 2013!
