A three-year project on downtown Las Vegas' roads is set to begin on April 27, according to the City of Las Vegas.
On Monday, road work will start consecutively on Las Vegas Boulevard from Stewart Avenue to Sahara Avenue, Bridger Avenue from 13th Street to Las Vegas Boulevard and Third Street from Utah to Colorado Avenue, the city said.
The work is to replace underground utilities, traffic signals, medians, curbs, gutters, sidewalks and pavement. The city will be adding 200 new trees, bus stop access, new turn signals and neon signage on new medians. Right turn "pockets" will be added at Charleston Boulevard and Stewart Avenue intersections.
This is the largest project in the history of the city's Public Works department.
"The estimated total project cost is $125 million, with funding provided by the Southern Nevada Regional Transportation Commission’s Fuel Revenue Indexing tax, Las Vegas Valley Water District, the city of Las Vegas and the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial," the city said in a press statement.
According to the city, the water lines being replaced are from 1955, while the traffic signals and sewer pipes are from 1965 and 1942, respectively.
Work will be done from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The city said the first year of work will include removing medians and utility replacement.
Drivers are asked to take Maryland Parkway and Grand Central Parkway for uninterrupted north-south traffic.
