To the EXPO

To reach the Expo Monday morning from the Best Western leave the hotel and head West on Trinity Drive (towards the mountains). Continue on Trinity, and take a left upon reaching the intersection with Diamond Drive. Follow Diamond Drive over the bridge staying the right hand lane.

Vehicle Access Portals (VAPs) will allow or restrict access in a graded approach as dictated by the DOE/NNSA Security Condition (SECON) levels in effect at the site or as otherwise directed by Los Alamos National Laboratory management. Below is an image of the current traffic pattern.

Access to LANL via East Jemez Road

BUSES WILL NEED TO USE THE RIGHT MOST OPEN LANE (lane 7), so that the guards can board the buses for inspection, if necessary.

Follow the traffic into the VAP and proceed on through. You'll be coming from the top of the map below. At this time, drivers are NOT required to stop for verbal or hand signal direction from Protective Force officers. Continue on West Jemez Road through the first signal (Diamond Drive). At the next stoplight (just past the fire station, #41 on the map), turn left. There might be parking available in the parking garage, but probably not after 8:30 am. If you don't find parking there, you can drop off passengers and poster boards in front of the Research Library, number 207 on the map, (just south of the parking garage) and then head to the General Parking area off of Diamond Drive. Follow the green path to walk to the Research Library.

Participants arriving Monday Morning: To reach the Expo, continue on NM 4 (towards White Rock) at the NM 502 / NM 4 junction. Continue on NM 4 until the first stop light.

Go through the Diamond Drive intersection and turn left at the signal just past the fire station, #41 on the map. There might be parking available in the parking garage, but probably not after 8:30 am.
