Starting Thursday, July 11, and continuing through the next five weeks, there will be construction of new roadway improvements on Alta Drive, between Valley View Boulevard and Rancho Drive.
The work, including repaving, utility adjustments and new traffic striping, will generally be done between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
A rubberized asphalt mix will be used for the project. Rubberized asphalt was chosen due to the environmental benefits for recycling of used tires, along with sound reduction properties which will be beneficial for the adjacent residential neighborhoods. Motorists are advised to use Charleston Boulevard or U.S. 95 as alternate east and west travel routes.
Las Vegas Paving Corporation is the contractor, and the city of Las Vegas Department of Operations and Maintenance is managing the project. Funding for the approximately $400,000 project is provided by the city of Las Vegas.
