15th Street Closed On North Side Of Charleston Boulevard Aug

Business Access Only On Charleston During Storm Drain Installation Through Intersection

The Charleston-Maryland Storm Drain Project roadwork that began in October 2021 continues to work westward and now will require a temporary closure of 15th Street on the north side of the Charleston Boulevard intersection Aug. 16-23 for installation of storm drain in the intersection.

Beginning Wednesday, Aug. 16, at 4 a.m., the intersection will be closed to through traffic. East- and westbound traffic on Charleston will not be affected by the closure, although the area continues to have reduced lanes as part of the ongoing project. During the temporary closure, access to 15th Street will be detoured to 14th Street northbound, to Clark Avenue eastbound, for access to 15th Street. See the map.

The Charleston-Maryland Storm Drain Project roadwork is expected to be complete by January 2024. The scope of the project includes storm drain installation on Fremont from Atlantic Avenue and proceeding west up Charleston Boulevard from Fremont to Maryland Parkway. Additional work will be performed in Maryland Parkway from Charleston to Stewart Avenue and in 13th Street from Charleston to Lewis Avenue. The project affects sections of several streets in Ward 3 and Ward 5 (see project map). Alternate east/west routes during the construction include Sahara Avenue and Stewart.

This $51.5 million project will install more than 10,000 feet of new, reinforced-concrete boxes, varying in size from 6 feet by 5 feet to 24 feet by 6 feet, within Charleston Boulevard from Fremont Street to Maryland Parkway. Additional storm drain, water supply, and sewer improvements will be made through the corridor, as well as on adjacent side streets, including Fremont Street, Maryland Parkway, and 13th Street.

This project is part of the Clark County Regional Flood Control District’s master-planned facilities intended to alleviate the heavy flow of stormwater that flowed down the street surface of Charleston Boulevard in the past.

Las Vegas Paving is the contractor, and the city of Las Vegas Department of Public Works is managing the project. The project is funded by the Clark County Regional Flood Control District, the Regional Transportation Commission, and the Las Vegas Valley Water District. Residents with concerns or questions should call 702-405-6822.
