The work will be going on from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but lane restrictions will be in place for 24 hours to protect trenches.

Drivers should be ready for delays and should allow extra travel time.

Bypass, I-15 Interchange Funded by Feds

Bypass, I-15 Interchange Funded by Feds

Funding for the long-awaited Boulder City bypass and for a new interchange at Cactus Avenue on Interstate 15 came today from the federal government.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced nearly $11.5 million in grants to fund an array of highway-related efforts in Nevada.

"Transportation investments like these will create jobs and improve the quality of life for Nevada residents as well as strengthen the state’s economy," said Secretary LaHood. "The demand from the states for these funds shows just how critical the need is for infrastructure investment."

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) invited states to apply in June for federal funding from 14 grant programs. Requests poured in from every state, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. – more than 1,800 applications, totaling nearly $13 billion, which is more than 30 times the funds available.

Sewer Project Could Disrupt Traffic

A sewer project along Rainbow Boulevard near Mountain's Edge could disrupt traffic.

The project will start on Monday, August 8, between Meranto Avenue and Landberg Avenue. Crews will be working on the side of Rainbow Boulevard. No lanes of traffic will be shutdown but drivers should be prepared to slow down. 

The project will go through at least the end of August. Sewer service will not be impacted during the work but traffic will be. The Clark County Water Reclamation District is overseeing the project. 

Sewer Project Expected to Cause Traffic Tie-ups

A project to improve sewer service will force lanes along Decatur Boulevard to be restricted.

The restrictions started Saturday and will last at least through the end of September. The southbound travel lanes on Decatur between Sirius Avenue and Edna Avenue will be moved into the northbound side of the street. Other lane restrictions in the area and side streets are expected while crews work on the sewer lines. Sewer service will not be interrupted but traffic will be.

The work starts at 6 a.m. and goes on until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Clark County Water Reclamation District is working on the project.

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.
