Mayor Pro Tem Stavros S. Anthony will be joined by Clark County Commissioner Larry Brown to celebrate the opening of a section of Lone Mountain Road to the public on Thursday, April 19, at 4 p.m. The ceremonies will take place at the corner of Lone Mountain Road and Shasta Blue Street.
The area along Cliff Shadows Parkway includes several neighborhoods, but the only access in or out of the area was Cheyenne Avenue or Alexander Road. Lone Mountain Road offered a third means of entrance and egress from the community, but between 215 and Cliff Shadows Lone Mountain was a private Bureau of Land Management (BLM) haul route.
The city worked with the BLM and road improvements on Lone Mountain began in late January 2012. The construction improvements consisted of site grading, drainage improvements, installation of earthen embankment and barrier rail safety structures, signage and striping, traffic signal upgrades at the 215-Lone Mountain intersection, and removal and replacement of approximately 0.5 miles of roadway.
“This is something that residents in the area have been wanting for a long time,” Mayor Pro Tem Anthony said. “With Lone Mountain now brought up to public standards those who live in the Cliff Shadows area now have another convenient option to get to and from their homes.”
The project cost $711,000 and the contractor was Las Vegas Paving. The design consultant was Slater-Hannifin Group, and design and construction was administered by the city of Las Vegas.
