Sidewalk Upgrades in West LV and Downtown
Las Vegas CBS KXNT- Sidewalk improvement continues in the city of Las Vegas, with two additional neighborhoods enduring a few months of construction to have better long-term “walkability.” Key improvements include the installation of 150 new ADA-compliant ramps at corners, and upgrades to 25 existing ramps.
The crew at the corner of Charleston and Decatur is also widening, replacing street lights and building new turn lanes, in a portion of the project that should take several months, its supervisor said. Traffic is not not significantly disrupted at that corner.
The designated construction areas are in the residential neighborhood bounded by Decatur, Meadows Lane, Valley View and Charleston; And teh area bounded by Marion, Charleston, Stewart and the Las Vegas Wash. The city recently completed work to sidewalks in Council Wards 4 and 5.
The city says its goal is accessibility, and a generally more safe and pleasant pedestrian experience.
