Flood Control Projects Slated to Begin in Northwest

Two project are slated to begin in the new year to address the flooding that happened along Grand Teton Drive this past summer.

The first project will start in January. Crews will be installing box culverts along Grand Teton Drive between Durango Drive and Rainbow Boulevard.

The $12 million project will take about 14 months to finish. The project will start on the east end near Rainbow and proceed west.

A second project is scheduled to start in the spring. Crews will be adding box culverts along Grand Teton between Hualapai Way and Tee Pee Lane. Construction is expected to be finished by the end of 2014.

This past summer several thunderstorms hit the same area of the Las Vegas valley overwhelming the Kyle Canyon Detention Basin. The water rushed in the northwest part of the valley, filling roads with debris and mud.

The box culverts will help keep water off the roads and better direct it into washes and detention basins.
