Nellis Boulevard between Charleston Boulevard and Mohave Avenue will be temporarily closed overnight from 9 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, to 5:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 31, during construction of a new concrete deck on a pedestrian bridge there.
Traffic will be detoured around this block of Nellis during construction.
Nighttime work relating to the pedestrian bridge deck construction will continue through September, and is expected to cause intermittent temporary lane closures on Nellis in this area.
The pedestrian bridge at Nellis is part of the new Las Vegas Wash Trail Project running approximately 3 miles along the Las Vegas Wash at Charleston, through the Desert Rose Golf Course to Sloan Lane and connecting with the Flamingo-Arroyo Trail and Clark County Wetlands Park.
The project is funded by the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act and will provide a connection with the Regional Trail System, and projects proposed by the cities of Las Vegas and North Las Vegas. More information about the Clark County Trails Program is available through the Comprehensive Planning Department web page on the County website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov.
