Delays expected as crews fix water main break near Montgomery, Tramway

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Residents in one part of northeast Albuquerque could see some delays heading into work Monday morning.

This, as numerous lanes on Montgomery near Tramway remains closed as crews continue to repair a water main break.

Officials said they hoped to have it fixed by Saturday, but it appears that there is still more work to be done.

On Friday afternoon, the Water Authority sent out a notification of the water main break on the app called “Next Door.”

Crews have been working to repair a leak in a 24-inch transmission line on Landau along Montgomery Boulevard. This is just east of Tramway, across from the Smith’s.

Traffic at the intersection of Montgomery and Tramway was affected all weekend long.

The break is right in the middle of the road which means only one lane in each direction is open.

While the Water Authority has not reported any outages, residents in this area were told they could see low water pressure or lose service temporarily, particularly in the Glenwood Hills Neighborhood.

It’s unclear right now if Smith’s was affected by this water main break.

Water Authority officials said to expect traffic problems in the area over the “next few days” as they work on a permanent fix. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
