Shadow Lane Improvements Begin Between Alta and Charleston
Summer-Long Traffic Lane Restrictions Start Monday, June 18

 

On Monday, June 18, work will commence on the second and final phase of a public infrastructure improvement project on Shadow Lane between Alta Drive and Charleston Boulevard. The project scope includes:

  • Removal and replacement of asphalt pavement;
  • Street widening between Kenyon Place and Alta to provide a northbound exclusive right-turn lane;
  • Completion of remaining Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) required upgrades;
  • Traffic signal modifications at the Alta Drive/Shadow Lane intersection;
  • Removal and replacement of 377 linear feet of sewer main pipe, which will upgrade sewer flow capacity;
  • Removal and replacement of sewer manholes;
  • Restriping of the street to provide one lane in each direction, along with a center turn lane and bike lanes;
  • Upgraded crosswalks with concrete islands designed for pedestrian safety.

Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Work activities will be accommodated by using half-street road closures. The work is expected to be complete by Aug. 31, 2012.

The first phase of work was completed earlier this year, and consisted of improvements to sidewalk areas to meet federal ADA requirements, installation of underground traffic signal conduit, plus construction of traffic signal poles and foundations to make a future traffic signal at the intersection of Pinto and Shadow lanes possible without disturbing the new roadway.

Motorists are advised to use Rancho Drive or Tonopah Drive as alternative routes.  

Aggregate Industries, Inc. is the contractor. City of Las Vegas Department of Operations and Maintenance personnel are managing the project. Funding for this project is provided by the city of Las Vegas and the Clark County Regional Transportation Commission. The estimated cost for this phase of the improvements is $1,200,000.
