Construction safety: As part of the campus safety initiatives, I would to remind everyone how important it is to be cautious in the various construction zones on campus and the surrounding areas.  Pedestrians should always follow traffic signs, cross roadways in designated crosswalks, and seek safe alternative routes if the usual route has been diverted. Please see more about construction safety in the UNM Newsroom article.
