LAS VEGAS — Starting approximately 9 p.m. Friday and ending about 5 a.m. Monday, the intersection of Vegas Drive and Decatur Boulevard will be closed to through traffic.

Traffic will be able to access all businesses up to the Vegas Drive and Decatur Boulevard intersection. Detours will be in place to direct Vegas Drive through traffic to either Washington Avenue or West Lake Mead Boulevard. Detours also will be in place to direct Decatur Boulevard through traffic to either Jones Boulevard or Rancho Drive.

Closure of the intersection is required to install a new sanitary sewer main line along Vegas drive through the Decatur intersection. The depth of the sewer main will not allow for installation under traffic conditions. Electronic sign boards will be placed along Vegas Drive and Decatur Boulevard to warn the traveling public in advance of the closure.

An additional closure of the intersection will be required in late November and again in early December for the installation of storm drain pipe.

The city of Las Vegas began work on the $15 million Vegas Drive Improvement project in January 2013; it is scheduled for completion in July 2014. Motorists can continue to expect traffic delays in the area while the work is being done.

The work consists of constructing an underground storm drainage system on Vegas Drive from Michael Way to Rancho Drive to alleviate the heavy flow of storm water that has traditionally flowed down the street surface of Vegas Drive.

The work also will include an upgrade to the sanitary sewer mainline from Saylor Way to Valley Drive and along Shadow Mountain Place on the north side of Vegas Drive.
