Decorative Installation Will Shut Down Lanes

Decorative Installation Will Shut Down Lanes

 

Crews will be closing down lanes on a busy road to make improvements to the median.

The inside lanes on both east and westbound Cheyenne Avenue from Rampart Boulevard to Hualapai Way will be closed starting Monday. Construction crews will be putting in decorative rocks, sculptures and plants. The project is part of a median improvement that started last spring.

The closures will be from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day through Friday, October 28. Work is not planned for Sunday, October 23. Some of the sculptures used in the median were done by metalworkers with the city of Las Vegas. 

Lane Restrictions Planned for Rainbow Boulevard

Improvements to the city's trail system will force lane closures of Rainbow Boulevard.

The road will be down to one lane at Westcliff Drive from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Westcliff Drive will be closed completely at Rainbow Boulevard from Friday night until Monday morning at 7 a.m. The on and off ramps along U.S. 95 will not be impacted by the closures, but traffic tie-ups are expected.

Crews will be repaving Rainbow Boulevard and the pedestrian walkway that was recently installed. The walkway is 200 feet long, 16 feet wide and 12 feet high. It is underneath the intersection and connects to the Bonanza Trail. The trail is part of the miles of trails built and maintained by the City of Las Vegas. The new crossing means there is a non-stop connection between the trail that starts at Durango Drive through to downtown.

New Flashing Yellow Signals Start Today

When it comes to left turns, green usually means go – except when it doesn’t.

Drivers at two intersections in the city of Las Vegas will notice a change when they enter the left turn lane at the intersections of Alta and Town Center drives, and Smoke Ranch and Decatur avenues starting today. Instead of the green ball indicating the driver must yield to oncoming traffic, a new flashing yellow arrow turn signal will be in effect.

The two intersections are part of a pilot program by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), the Nevada Department of Transportation and the various government agencies in the valley to replace existing left-turn signals with new flashing yellow arrow left-turn signals at selected intersections to make it safer for drivers and pedestrians.

Bus Project Continues to Choke Sahara Traffic

Bus Project Continues to Choke Sahara Traffic

Construction related to a major bus project continues to snarl traffic on one of the city’s major thoroughfares.

Work on the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada’s Sahara Express rapid transit project is causing in travel lane restrictions on Sahara Avenue between Las Vegas Boulevard and Boulder Highway through the end of August. At least one travel lane will remain open in either direction.

Crews will mill the existing pavement and will place new pavement during the overnight hours, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.  Lane closures will remain in effect during the daytime hours as well. Crews are working on a variety of projects from Boulder Highway to Hualapai Way. Intermittent lane closures may be in effect throughout the corridor while work is underway.

Drivers are urged to take precautions and allow extra time when traveling through the impacted areas. Additional work in the corridor this week includes:

Sewer Project Forces Lane Closures

A sewer rehabilitation project will force crews to shut down lanes along Peace Way near El Capitan Way.

The closures start Friday and last through at least August 31. East and westbound traffic will be moved to the south side of the street and be one lane in each direction between El Capitan Way and Juliano Road.

Crews with Clark County Water Reclamation District will be working on the project Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sewer will not be interrupted by the project but traffic in the area will.

Lane Closure Upcoming on Summerlin Parkway

Lane Closure Upcoming on Summerlin Parkway

 

Beginning Sunday night, the left lane of the Summerlin Parkway ramp will be closed from the beginning of the ramp at 95 North to the Buffalo exit for about three weeks.

The purpose of the closure is to allow construction crews to safely put up a bridge pier and a retaining wall for the construction of the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) flyover ramp on Summerlin Parkway.

This is part of a project to create a flyover bridge connecting an HOV lane from Summerlin parkway to the HOV system on US 95. The work is expected to be completed by next summer.
