Santa Fe plaza closures have begun

Posted: Updated:

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales' plan to block traffic around the northern New Mexico capital's historic plaza has taken effect this week.

On Monday, the city shut the east side of Old Santa Fe Trail and the west side of Lincoln Avenue to reduce traffic and reinvigorate the plaza during the summer tourism season. The streets will reopen after Fiesta weekend in September. Additionally, the city has ordered more tables and chairs for the plaza.

West San Francisco remains open to thru traffic and the outside lanes of both Lincoln and Old Santa Fe Trail will be open for deliveries and public safety vehicles.
