Eastern Avenue will be closed at the intersection with East Twain Avenue from 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24, to 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27, while workers install a new flood control tunnel under the road.
The installation will require digging up part of Eastern between Twain and Emerson Street. The continuous work schedule and complete closure of Eastern will impact traffic during the weekend, but ensures the work has a minimal impact on weekday rush-hours.
During the closure, traffic will be detoured around this part of Eastern at Flamingo and Desert Inn roads. Local residential and business traffic will have limited access to Eastern between Flamingo and Desert Inn.
The project will improve the storm-water capacity of the Flamingo Wash.
The contractor for the project is Tand Inc.
