ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque Public Schools is firing back a day after City Council blocked a controversial project.
APS wants to create a two-lane road that would essentially run right next to Jefferson Middle School.
The district says it would ease traffic congestion and make it safer for pedestrians on nearby streets.
On Monday night, the City Council passed a resolution to block changes to any road connected to Lomas near the middle school until there is a formal meeting with APS, the city and neighbors about the project.
Superintendent Winston Brooks says the City Council's resolution is all about one thing – politics.
“It's really sad that we are sacrificing kids’ safety because of a City Council election that's coming up,” said Brooks. “I think that's what this is all about. Unfortunately. it's about politics. There's a lot of traffic concerns out here.”
Area residents and the council say they are concerned about the safety of pedestrians leaving campus and increased pollution.
