Driving You Crazy: Traffic light needed at Durango and Dorrell
News

LAS VEGAS - A viewer wants crews to install a crosswalk at N. Durango Drive and Dorrell Lane.

This project has been in the works for a year. In the summer of 2013, group of developers proposed a new gas station in the area. They wanted to remove the median island that permits turns from Dorrell.

The county informed the developers that they would have to install a traffic signal first. The developers and the county agreed to share the cost for a new light, which would have solved the pedestrian problems.

The developers received their preliminary design and traffic signal warrant analysis. City officials approved the plans, but little progress has been made.

County leaders are now giving the developers an ultimatum; if they don't finalize this agreement by the end of this week, the county will push forward with a pedestrian flashing signal and immediately order parts. Shipment would take approximately 6 to 10 weeks, and the flashing signal would become operational later this year.
