Traffic Signals Activated at Las Vegas Boulevard, Agate Avenue

Neighbors around Las Vegas Boulevard and Agate Avenue in the Southern Las Vegas Valley south of Pebble Road will be pleased to know that traffic signals have been activated at that intersection.

The intersection – the site of 24 crashes caused by lawless driving, including one fatality, over the last two years – received four new traffic signal poles with signals, updated intersection lighting, four updated ADA access ramps, and sidewalk to connect to surrounding infrastructure, new striping and signage. New pavement will be completed throughout the intersection once warmer temperatures permit it. The average annual daily traffic at this intersection is 18,000 vehicles.

“These signals and other improvements will go a long way toward boosting public safety at that intersection -- not just for motorists, but particularly for elderly pedestrians who live in nearby senior housing,” said Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft, who represents the area. The Esplanade Senior Apartments and the Ensemble Senior Apartments are located west of the intersection.
