Las Vegas Councilman Bob Coffin To Break Ground On Las Vegas Wash Pedestrian Bridge At Lamb Boulevard
Project Is Part Of Regional Trail System

 

Las Vegas Councilman Bob Coffin will break ground on a pedestrian bridge that will cross Lamb Boulevard at the Las Vegas Wash Trail on Thursday, Feb. 20, at 3:30 p.m. located at 930 N. Lamb Blvd. in the Plaza Americanas. This bridge is part of Phase 2 of the trail construction project that runs with the Las Vegas Wash.

Work on this $2.7 million project includes construction of a pre-fabricated steel bridge across Lamb Boulevard for pedestrians to cross, along with trail improvements.

This project is part of the city’s commitment to improve walking trails and create safe routes for pedestrians. The total length of the Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail system will be about 18 miles after completion of this project and the Stewart to Charleston piece. This regional system is part of more than 200 miles of trails planned for the valley.

“This pedestrian bridge is another part of the city’s goal to create connectivity in the trails system within the city and the valley,” Councilman Coffin said. “It also creates another opportunity for residents to get healthy and experience the wonders of the Las Vegas Wash.”

Funding is provided by the Bureau of Land Management through the sale of public lands as authorized by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (SNPLMA).
