City Warns of Truck Traffic as Debris is Removed

Crews with the city of Las Vegas will start clearing away debris that built up in the Kyle Canyon Detention Basin from this past summer's flooding.

The city says it will need to clear about 25,000 tons of debris and move it to the Apex Regional Landfill.

The city warns it will take about 10 days to clean out the basin with a projected 64 trips per day by crews from Las Vegas Paving.

The trucks will be traveling eastbound on Grand Teton Drive, north onto Grand Canyon Drive and enter U.S. 95 at the Horse Drive interchange. Crews will exit the freeway at Durango Drive, tae Oso Blanco to the 215 beltway eastbound to the landfill.

On the return trip, crews will head westbound on the 215 beltway to Sky Point Drive and then exit at Buffalo Drive. They will take Buffalo Drive to U.S. 95.

The city is warning people in the northwest to be aware of the increase in truck traffic.

A series of thunderstorms hit the same area of the northwest, overwhelming the detention basin and causing flash flooding.
