Grading of Spur Ranch Road

Spur Ranch Road Association Members:

 

Your Spur Ranch Road Association Board of Directors was hoping for monsoonal activity in June that would dampen Spur Ranch Road prior to planned road maintenance and, while NOAA is predicting a good chance of slightly above average monsoonal activity for July*, the trace of rain that was received in this area was insufficient to adequately dampen the road. Your Board has determined that Spur Ranch Road cannot wait for any potential rain prior to starting road maintenance. 

 

Starting early next week, from US 285 west to the tracks,  you will experience a grader deeply ripping the surface of the road, followed by significant watering while the road is ripped.  Following deep watering the road will be graded, shaped, crowned and, finally,  rolled to compact the surface –a  dry road cannot be adequately compacted.   From the tracks west to Compadres the road will be graded and shaped only.  While this maintenance is occurring please give the heavy equipment a wide berth – the operators will be focused on high quality road maintenance and might not see you – so please drive slowly giving the machinery operators safe and optimal clearance.

 

Thanks,

 

Al

for Spur Ranch Road Association Board of Directors

Spur Ranch Road Ass'n (SRRA) Earth Day cleanup

Many thanks to the SRRA members who have volunteered to do the Earth Day debris pickup on 21 April (this coming Saturday).  Pickup will start at 0830.  For members who are not doing this pickup please be aware that your neighbors and friends will be on the road and shoulders Saturday morning  collecting a year’s worth of debris and reduced speed to curtail dust plumes will be appreciated!  See you on Earth Day ‘ On The Road’.

 

Please drive slowly and carefully.

Spur Ranch Road Grading

2 April, 2018

 

Spur Ranch Road will be graded on Monday, 2 April from US 285 west to the Santa Fe Southern Rail Road Tracks.  Please exercise caution and drive at slower-than-normal speeds while this road maintenance is in progress.

If you have not renewed your 2018 membership in the Spur Ranch Road Association (SRRA) please do so as soon as possible; your membership in the SRRA funds the maintenance, upgrading and repair of the road and is the only source of such funding.

Please drive slowly!

Trains on the tracks

TUESDAY MARCH 13 Train Activity on the Santa Fe Southern Tracks !

From the SFSR Office:

There will be a safety meeting at 10 am in Lamy. The #93 engine will be fired up and run light up to Santa Fe to pick up the #1195. Come back down to Lamy and shuffle everything around. Best guess is that the return to Lamy with the #1195 will happen sometime between 2 and 4.

 

If you or someone you know regularly ‘blow through’ the stop sign at the railroad tracks,  today might be the day to rethink that.

Sadie was found!

Dear Neighbor,

At 5:05 pm,Sadie, our friend Pam's little five pound Yorkie mix, was finally found! To be more accurate, Sadie found us. She had worked her way up to Avenida Vista Grande and wandered onto Rt 285 (3+miles). Traffic stopped, Sadie ran under a car, and it took six motorists to coax her out. After going missing for eight hours, she was frightened, hungry, and dehydrated, but is now happily reunited with her mom.

Now, here's the part of this saga I find especially touching. Throughout the day, as we looked for Sadie, Carole and Pam and I kept finding community members out looking for her also. People we'd never met were on foot, on horseback, driving slowly with their emergency flashers on, combing the streets, knocking on doors, all searching for a tiny lost dog they'd never met, who belonged to a women they'd never met. I think that kind of community spirit and involvement is a special part of living here, and I am enormously grateful for everybody who pitched in. And, of course, so is Sadie. Thank you all very, very much.

Jim


Missing Dog on Spur Ranch Road

Please help us find Sadie (photo attached), a tiny five pound mixed breed, who wandered off about 9 am this morning and is most likely on SRR, near the RR track crossing, or one of the side streets. She is wearing a collar and name tag. Please email me or call Carole Garland at 505-699-5811, or Pam Kellett at 505-919-9551 if you have seen her or have any information at all. She is very small and adorable and very friendly. Thanks.
