LAS VEGAS -- The city of Las Vegas has begun work on a sewer rehabilitation project that will cause delays and traffic restrictions along Lake Mead Boulevard from Rancho Drive to Hills Center Drive into the fourth quarter of 2013.
The project will repair or replace approximately 23,000 feet of 21 to 27 inch sewer line and 70 manholes in Lake Mead Boulevard. In addition, 18 manholes in Hills Center Drive from Lake Mead Boulevard to Covington Cross Drive will also be repaired or replaced.
Work will be occurring in the overnight hours in non-residential areas and during the daytime in residential areas. During construction, motorists can expect lane closures and pedestrians can expect sidewalk closures. East-west travel alternatives include Cheyenne Avenue and Craig Road.
Las Vegas Paving is the contractor on the $7.1 million project. Funding is provided through the city of Las Vegas Sewer Enterprise Fund. Pedestrian and business access will be maintained during construction.
