PRESS RELEASE

Project Neon Partners With Local

Trade Union for Skills Training

MSE_Training_6

LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. have partnered with the Laborers International Union of North America, Local 872, for Project Neon related construction skills training. Craft workers are being directly employed by design-build general contractor, Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. “Project Neon will stimulate the local economy by creating 4,000 high paying local jobs, while dramatically reducing traffic delays, enhancing mobility and improving safety,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia.

Laborers will undergo 24 hours of specialized training for building mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls, which use precast concrete and metal to secure soil on an unstable and steep slope. The course curriculum consists of classroom learning and field training. Sixty laborers will undergo the two-day training process.

Construction calls for 600,000 square feet of mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls that will require 100,000 man-hours to complete. Project Neon, in total, entails enough retaining walls and bridge abutments to cover ten-and-a-half football fields.

The first retaining walls will begin construction September 9 at Martin Luther King Boulevard and U.S. Highway 95 in downtown Las Vegas, with work continuing through summer 2019.

Training classes will take place at the Laborers Local 872 Apprenticeship and Training Center, 4201 East Bonanza Road, Suite 101, Las Vegas, Nevada 89110. Classes are scheduled for August 10 and 11, 15 and 16, and August 29 through 30. For media and interview opportunities, contact Tony Illia at (702) 385-6509 or tillia@dot.state.nv.us.

Henderson Police officers arrested eight drivers on DUI charges and handed out more than 280 speeding tickets to motorists and motorcycle riders during a recent enforcement effort targeting impaired drivers.

Henderson Police officers, assisted by North Las Vegas Police, Boulder City Police and Nevada Highway Patrol, used saturation patrols to search the area for drunk drivers for an enforcement that started on July 1 and went through Monday.

The officers issued 289 tickets to motorists for speeding and another 10 citations for motorists driving while talking on a cellphone or texting. The officers also issued a number of tickets to drivers for registration violations, no insurance or driving on a revoked, suspended or expired driver’s license.

In 2014, there were 9,967 drunken driving fatalities in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 31 percent of the total motor vehicle traffic fatalities in the country.

Last year, 326 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes on Nevada roadways. Alcohol was a contributing factor in 61 of those deaths, according to the Nevada Department of Public Safety – Office of Traffic Safety. Clark County had 39 of the 61 alcohol-related traffic crash deaths in 2015 with a total of 210 of the 326 traffic fatalities. So far this year there have been 152 traffic-related fatalities statewide with seven of those occurring in Henderson.

The Henderson Police Traffic Unit received funding from the Department of Public Safety – Office of Traffic Safety, as part of the Joining Forces Grant. The grant provides funding for enforcement and education to reduce deaths and injuries on Nevada roadways. The grant will assist in funding special enforcement details throughout the year targeting seat belt usage, DUIs, pedestrian safety and speeding violations.

Rock of Vegas Summer Concert Series Continues
in Downtown Las Vegas on Saturday, July 23

Fremont Street Experience’s Rock of Vegas concert series will feature Robby Krieger of The Doors, Saturday, July 23 at 9 p.m. on the 1st Street Stage. Krieger gained fame quickly after joining The Doors and went on to write hit songs for the band including “Love Her Madly” and “L.A. Woman.” Immediately before the concert, guests can enjoy the The Doors – Strange Days in Vegas Viva Vision show.

Celebrating its eighth season, the free concerts have become one of the most popular summertime events in Las Vegas. This year’s lineup will turn the legendary downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue into summer’s alternative destination through Labor Day weekend with a free concert series that showcases a stellar lineup of bands that have taken music to the edge.

Robby Krieger of The Doors

Born in Los Angeles, California, Robby Krieger played in bands with friends where he eventually came into contact with drummer John Densmore. The two began jamming on blues together, later on meeting keyboardist Ray Manzarek and poet/singer Jim Morrison, resulting in the birth of The Doors. Quickly building a name for themselves in L.A. with their unpredictable live shows, The Doors were signed to Elektra Records, and issued their debut album, the Doors, in 1967. The album would become one of rock’s all-time classics, as it spawned the monster hit “Light My Fire,” a tune penned entirely by Krieger. Subsequent studio releases — 1967′s Strange Days, 1968′s Waiting for the Sun, and 1969′s The Soft Parade — all included several classic songs, and by the dawn of the ’70s, the band issued a pair of strong releases, 1970′s Morrison Hotel and 1971′s L.A. Woman. Krieger would go on to issue solo albums in addition to playing live dates, and guest appearances on albums by other artists. In the early 21st century, Krieger and Manzarek resuscitated The Doors (with the Cult’s Ian Asbury taking Morrison’s position, and the Police’s Stewart Copeland initially taking Dunmore’s spot) for live shows and recordings. Robby is currently playing Doors songs with his Robby Krieger Band and special guest vocalist Waylon Krieger.

City of North Las Vegas to honor former Congresswoman Shelley Berkley

For the first time since Mayor John Lee took office, the City of North Las Vegas will honor a community partner with a key to the City.

Former Congresswoman Shelley Berkley will receive a key to North Las Vegas on July 20 during the North Las Vegas City Council meeting, which starts 6 p.m. at City Hall, 2250 Las Vegas Blvd. North, North Las Vegas.

The City Council also will present Berkley with a proclamation and a street sign. The intent is to rename a street near the VA hospital in Berkley’s honor.

Berkley, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives for seven terms, has been instrumental in the growth and development of the City of North Las Vegas. She helped lead the effort to develop the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in North Las Vegas, a state-of-the-art medical and diagnostic center that is Southern Nevada’s first VA hospital. Berkley also regularly provided funding for the North Las Vegas Police Department to buy equipment and vehicles.

“Shelley Berkley has been an enormous advocate for our City and its residents,” Mayor Lee said. “Her dedication and tireless work to bring a veterans’ hospital to Southern Nevada has changed the lives of tens of thousands of veterans and laid the foundation for what I believe will be a thriving, health care hub in North Las Vegas with medical offices, retail and housing.”

Berkley was the first person in her family to attend college, the second woman from Nevada elected to Congress and the first woman elected to represent Nevada’s 1st Congressional District. She graduated from UNLV with a political science degree and received her juris doctorate from the University of San Diego, School of Law. Berkley was elected to the House of Representatives in 1998 and served from 1999 to 2013. Prior to serving in Congress, she served in the Nevada Legislature and was appointed and twice elected to the Nevada State System of Higher Education Board of Regents. Today, the former Congresswoman is continuing her mission of improving health care as CEO and Senior Provost of Touro University Nevada and Touro University California.

“This is such a tremendous honor to receive from the City of North Las Vegas,” Berkley said. “I am thrilled that during my time serving the people of Nevada I was able to make a long-lasting impact for the community. It is wonderful to see the results of the strides made to help provide much deserved and needed health care to the selfless men and women who have served our country.”

Henderson Police announced Sunday that all officers will be patrolling in two-officer units after three officers were shot and killed in Baton Rouge earlier today.

While there have been no credible reports of any threats to Henderson Police officers, Police Chief Patrick Moers ordered that all patrols and responses to calls for service be done by two-officer units as a safety precaution.

“We extend our thoughts and prayers to the Baton Rouge community and police force.” Chief Moers said. “In Henderson, we must all come together to help prevent any tragedies.”

Residents may notice that two officers will show up for all calls for service regardless of the level of crime priority. This is being done to ensure the safety of the residents and the police officers. Calls for service will be prioritized by the severity of the emergency.

Henderson Police will continue to monitor the incident in Baton Rouge and other cities and will evaluate the continuing need for two-officer units in the coming days.
