The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) invited the public to an informational meeting on February 7th to solicit input for proposed safety improvements along Eastern Avenue / Civic Center Drive between U.S. Highway 95 and Cope Avenue in North Las Vegas and Las Vegas, including widened sidewalks, improved lighting, additional pedestrian crossings, raised medians, pedestrian flashing beacons, intersection configurations, and signal upgrades. The meeting was conducted by Lori Campbell, Project Manager and David Tusler Kimley-Horn Company. The open house style meeting showed displays, maps and project staff was there to answer questions.
This stretch of roadway has gone from a lightly traveled road into a densely developed urban corridor with several residences, schools and businesses, resulting in increased pedestrian and motorist traffic. The project will improve mobility, access and reliability while making critical safety enhancements.
The project will start in the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019 with the betterment of the area. For more information contact Lori Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
