Nellis Boulevard Sewer Upgrades, Traffic Restrictions Start August 9 in North Las Vegas
NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The City of North Las Vegas will soon make $14.5 million in sanitary sewer improvements along a 2.5-mile stretch of Nellis Boulevard (State Route 612) between Cheyenne Avenue (State Route 574) and Las Vegas Boulevard (State Route 604). Work will occur from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday, August 9 through July 2018.
The first phase of the Northeast Interceptor Project calls for installing 15,000 feet of pipeline from 36- to 42 inches in size along Betty Lane, Cheyenne Avenue, Nellis Boulevard and Las Vegas Boulevard. Contri Construction Co. is the general contractor. The project entails 24-hour lane restrictions along Nellis Boulevard between Cheyenne Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard; however, one northbound and two southbound lanes will remain open.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible. The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
