LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- City officials have closed portions of three roads in northwest Las Vegas because of flooding.

Grand Teton Drive is closed from Quail View to Rainbow Boulevard. In addition, Rainbow is closed from Grand Teton to Farm. Farm is also closed from Rainbow to Tenaya.

Drivers should also avoid the intersections of Grand Teton and Tee Pee, Grand Teton and Grand Canyon. Alternate routes include Gilcrease and Racel.

City crews are working to mitigate the street flooding, which is also drawing ash and soot from the Carpenter 1 fire.

Roadways have become flooded with a black, mucky combination of water, ash and soot. This is an extremely slippery mixture, and if driven through, is much like driving on ice. Motorists are encouraged to avoid driving through these flows—it is simply very dangerous.

Stay up-to-date on road conditions and alert us to issues of black muck affecting the roadways on Twitter at, or by using #lvroads.
