Grand Teton Remains Closed Between Tee Pee and Oso Blanca In Northwest Las Vegas Due To Flood Damage
Motorists Advised To Use Caution While Clean-Up Continues

 

All roads are open in northwest Las Vegas, with the exception of Grand Teton Drive, which is closed between Oso Blanca Road and North Tee Pee Lane. Gilcrease Avenue continues to be an alternate route. City crews continue to clean up storm debris. Motorists should continue to use caution traveling streets where clean-up activities are in progress, and obey road closures and temporary traffic controls.

Dry conditions in the valley don’t necessarily mean dry conditions in the Spring Mountains. Rain in the Spring Mountains can cause flows of ash and soot, which can reach our roads in northwest Las Vegas. The National Weather Service reports that additional rain and thunderstorms are likely in the Las Vegas valley area through this week.

Stay up-to-date on road conditions and alert us to issues of black muck affecting the roadways on Twitter at twitter.com/cityoflasvegas, or by using #lvroads.
