New Traffic Light Turned on in Southern Highlands

 

A new traffic signal was put into operation in the southwest part of the Las Vegas valley Monday morning.

Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager was on hand to flip the switch at the intersection of Shinnecock Hills Avenue and Southern Highlands Parkway.

The intersection is near the Southern Highlands Boys and Girls Club, which is one of the reasons residents wanted the light installed.

"We have about a thousand children that come to the boys and girls club and every child's life is so important to us. We needed to make sure they had safe passage," Brager said.

Homeowners associations in the Southern Highlands community contributed money to help fund the new signal which assisted in getting it built quicker than most traffic lights.
