Commissioner, Officials Start Desert Inn Road Project

Commissioner Tick Segerblom earlier today marked the beginning of a construction project that will connect two sections of Desert Inn Road on the eastside of the valley.

“Commissioner Jim Gibson and I have been working to improve access for the residents of the eastside to the rest of the valley,” Commissioner Segerblom said. “This project will give drivers a more direct route to the homes and businesses in this area and make Desert Inn safer for everyone who uses it.”

The project will connect sections of Desert Inn with a new bridge over the Las Vegas Wash, add new roadway and bike lanes, and widen existing portions of the road between Blue Ash Lane and Hollywood Boulevard.

It is expected to take one year to complete. William Charles Inc. is the contractor on this project.
