NORTH LAS VEGAS -- The City and Meadow Valley Contractors have set up a project hotline that businesses and residents can call for information or to voice concerns. The number is (702) 880-8442.
The intersection of Lake Mead Boulevard and Pecos Road will be closed for six weeks beginning Sept. 24 as the City upgrades the Las Vegas Valley Wash box culvert.
This project will improve flood control and enhance the wash’s capacity at that location to withstand a 100-year storm event.
“The City is committed to ensuring homes and business properties in the area are fully protected from major floods,” Public Works Director Qiong Liu said. “We also are dedicated to completing this project with as little inconvenience to motorists as possible.”
During construction, traffic detours will be along Civic Center Drive on the west, Las Vegas Boulevard and Cheyenne on the north, Lamb Boulevard on the east and Owens Avenue on the south. Alternative travel routes also will be permitted on Carey Avenue, Walnut Road, James and Palmer streets.
To keep to the six-week time frame, crews will be working 16 to 24 hours a day. Crews will follow a work schedule that keeps noise levels at a minimum during late night and early morning hours.
