Weekend Closure Of Valley View Boulevard, North Of Charleston Boulevard Is Planned
Regional Storm Drainage Improvement Project Continues
Valley View Boulevard will be closed to through traffic, between Charleston Boulevard and Meadows Lane, starting at 5 a.m. on Saturday, June 5, and continuing through 6 a.m. on Monday, June 7. The temporary closure is needed as work continues on the $11 million Oakey Meadows Regional Storm Drainage System Improvement Project.
Most of the work will be performed Saturday and Sunday during the hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The road closure will be in effect 24 hours a day, with Valley View reopening to access by 6 a.m. on Monday.
During the closure, Decatur Boulevard is suggested as an alternate route for through north-south travel. Traffic on Fulton, Alta, and Meadows Lane near Valley View should not be affected. Access will be maintained for area residents and businesses.
This improvement project is designed to help alleviate flooding that can occur during heavy rainfall. Work started in January and will take a year to complete, as large concrete flood-control boxes are installed in sections of Valley View, Alta, Fulton and Hinson Street.
Meadow Valley Contractors, Inc. is the contractor. The city of Las Vegas Department of Public Works is managing the project. G.C. Wallace, Inc. is the construction management consultant. Funding is provided by the Clark County Regional Flood Control District and the city of Las Vegas.
