ALBUQUERQUE — Three-dimensional laser imaging technology may be part of the solution to road closures in Tijeras Canyon.
A demonstration of a laser scanning system is planned for legislators, the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department and the public on Friday.
The system is touted for reducing the time needed for traffic accident investigations - which can require closing the highway, quickly turning the canyon into a parking lot - by up to 50 percent.
