Construction of new roadway improvements on Shadow Lane between Alta Drive and Charleston Boulevard has begun and will continue for the next four weeks. Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The work will consist of improvements to sidewalk areas to meet federal Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, installation of underground traffic signal conduit, plus construction of traffic signal foundations for a future traffic signal at the intersection of Pinto and Shadow lanes. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on Shadow Lane during these activities, but motorists are advised to take Rancho Drive or Tonopah Drive as alternative routes. Pinto will be closed to through traffic at the Shadow Lane intersection periodically.
This is the first phase of a larger project. The second phase, which consists of sewer line and full-depth asphalt pavement removal and replacement, along with traffic-control improvements, is scheduled to begin in early April 2012.
Drew Asphalt Paving Inc. is the contractor. City of Las Vegas Department of Operations and Maintenance personnel are managing the project. Funding for this project is provided by the city of Las Vegas and the Clark County Regional Transportation Commission. The estimated cost for this phase of construction is $216,000.
