LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Following the recent rainy weather the city is making clean up in the northwest one of its top priorities with work scheduled to begin in two months.

But as News 3's Venise Toussaint tells us residents are still unclear when it will be completed.

The area in question is east of Highway 95. The plan is to construct two flood channels from Grand Teton to Durango to alleviate the flood damage.

The confusion is in the time line for the $15 million project which has been in the work for quite some time with the Flood Control District originally estimating a start date of January of next year.

The city has since made the project a top priority and slated to begin construction in November and completed in early 2015.

The Flood Control District however is calling that time line ambitious saying the project will take no less than 455 days to be completed.

“So it’s either going to be a month or two sooner in 2015 or a month or two later. We hope it’s earlier. We hope it’s a soon as possible,” said Clark County Flood Country District’s Erin Neff.
