(Las Vegas, KXNT)- Motorists who regularly use the 215 and neighboring streets up near North Durango will want to allow for some extra time during their daily commute. Starting Monday, the City of Las Vegas will begin construction on a storm drain project that’s expected to last for one year.
The project will install approximately one mile of new storm drain under Fort Apache Road between Elkhorn Road and CC-215. The first phase of the work will begin along CC-215. It will then proceed up Fort Apache, where one side of the road will be closed a block at a time. Traffic will be diverted to the other side with one lane open in each direction of travel. Once this project is complete, work will begin on a storm drain on Elkhorn Road from Fort Apache to Grand Canyon Drive.
In addition to the storm drain installation, Clark County will soon start to construct a bridge over the CC-215 at Fort Apache and the missing section of Fort Apache from CC-215 to Echelon Point Drive.
Motorists will need to adjust their driving routines.
