As many as half the traffic lanes on Rainbow Boulevard will close between Alta Drive and Washington Avenue from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday while work continues on a pedestrian undercrossing.
Lane closures will be required while a 50-foot wide trench is excavated through Rainbow Boulevard north of Westcliff Drive, and for major work on a pedestrian undercrossing of Rainbow. When completed, the arch will be 200 feet long, 16 feet wide and 12 feet high at the center, allowing ample space for pedestrians and bicyclists to cross Rainbow Boulevard below the roadway. Access to U.S. 95 on- and off-ramps will not be impeded, but motorists should expect traffic delays as a result of the lane restrictions.
Similar lane restrictions will be in place the weekends of April 1-4, 8-11 and 15-18, from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday, as the work progresses across Rainbow from east to west.
