What's Driving You Crazy? - Repaving Rampart

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) - Making sure you're up to speed on a different road project in the northwest valley

It may not impact as many drivers as the Centennial Bowl, but a heavily traveled street is in the middle of big-time lane restrictions that are scheduled to last through November.

The City of Las Vegas says Rampart between Lake Mead and Cheyenne is being repaved with all the other work that goes along with it. This will include new lane markings, bike lanes and a couple of intersections are getting flashing lights for pedestrian crossing.

During the day - 9am to 3pm - you'll be down to one lane in each direction. From 3 each afternoon through 9 each following morning they say there will be two lanes for each direction of travel.

Suggest workarounds: the 215 beltway to the west or Buffalo to the east... Read More

Centennial Bowl flyover in northwest valley opens today

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The state's second longest bridge opens Monday. It's the Centennial Bowl flyover bridge and will open at noon.

The flyover will eliminate the current stop-and-go surface street travel currently needed when navigating the U.S. Highway 95/215 Beltway interchange, while providing added capacity for future growth.

Currently, there are more than 100,000 cars a day on the ramps in the Centennial Bowl.

The flyover bridge will take drivers from northbound U.S. 95 to the westbound 215. The 39-foot wide flyover reaches 75 feet in height and is 2,635 feet long.

The 13-span concrete structure is the equivalent length of seven football fields laid end-to-end. It’s part of the $73 million Centennial Bowl interchange project that broke ground in January 2019.

 Construction on the entire project is expected to be done in mid-December... Read More

Bombshell Trump tax revelation could tarnish business mogul image that fueled his rise

WASHINGTON (AP) — The bombshell revelations that President Donald Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes the year he ran for office and paid no income taxes at all in many others threaten to undercut a pillar of his appeal among blue-collar voters and provide a new opening for his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, on the eve of the first presidential debate.

Trump has worked for decades to build an image of himself as a hugely successful businessman — even choosing “mogul” as his Secret Service code name. But The New York Times on Sunday revealed that he paid just $750 in federal income taxes in 2016, the year he won the presidency, and in 2017, his first year in office. He paid no income taxes whatsoever in 10 of the previous 15 years, largely because he reported losing more money than he made, according to the Times, which obtained years’ worth of tax return data that the president had long fought to keep private...
