To the EXPO

To reach the Expo Monday morning from the Comfort Inn leave the hotel and head West on Trinity Drive (towards the Jemez 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 6), so that the guards can board the buses for inspection, if necessary.

Follow the traffic into the VAP and STOP. The driver will need to show their picture ID (driver's license) to proceed on through. You'll be coming from the top of the map below.

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 onto Casa Grande Drive. There might be parking available in the parking garage (the small red area), 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 (the large red area below). Follow the green path to walk to the Research Library.
