Rampart Boulevard Sewer Project Update
Lake Mead/Rampart Intersection To Be Finished By Sept. 15

 

The installation of new sanitary sewer pipe on Rampart Boulevard from Lake Mead Boulevard to Alta Drive is being expedited to minimize the impact on schools near Lake Mead and Rampart. The contractor estimates that the Lake Mead/Rampart intersection will be finished by Sept. 15. Work days are Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Buffalo Drive is recommended as an alternate route for north/south travel.

After the intersection opens, lane restrictions will change as work begins on the installation of the sewer pipe on Rampart south of Lake Mead. During this construction, traffic will be constrained to the west half of Rampart between Lake Mead and Hillpointe Road, with one lane open to traffic in each direction and turn lanes where possible. The contractor anticipates work progressing south of Hillpointe by mid-October.

It is expected to take about 11 months to complete the entire project to install new 24-inch sewer pipe, requiring continuing lane restrictions on Rampart. Full-width repaving of Rampart is planned between Lake Mead and Canyon Run Drive.

The work on Rampart is planned in these phases:

• Phase 1 – August-October 2014, includes a sewer bypass at Lake Mead and sewer pipe placement along Rampart between Lake Mead and Hillpointe Road.
• Phase II – October-December 2014 – between Hillpointe and Vegas Drive.
• Phase III – December 2014-February 2015 – between Vegas Drive and the north off-ramps from Summerlin Parkway.
• Phase IV – February-March 2015 – between Summerlin Parkway north off-ramps and Canyon Run Drive.
• Phase V – March-May 2015 – between Canyon Run Drive and Alta Drive.

TAB Contractors, Inc. is the construction company. The city of Las Vegas is managing the project. The estimated total cost of this project is $12 million, provided by the city of Las Vegas Sanitation Fund and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. See the map.
