Deer Creek Road Closing Through Christmas
Transportation

 

The road used to get from one side of Mt. Charleston to the other will be closed from now until Christmas Day.

The U.S. Forest Service will be closing State Route 158, otherwise known as Deer Creek Road while crews work on the Desert Overlook area of the road.

Crews will be paving the shoulder, grading the dividing line and other construction near the highway.

Lee Canyon Road, which is State Route 156, and Kyle Canyon Road, which is State Route 157, will be open to traffic. Drivers wanting to get from Kyle Canyon Road to Lee Canyon Road, or vice versa, will have to drive down the mountain to U.S. 95.

The construction is part of a massive improvement project going on at several places in the Mt. Charleston area. Picnic areas, trailheads, roads and overlooks are all being improved.
