Motorists Advised To Avoid Grand Teton Drive Between Hualapai Way And Durango Drive
Elkhorn Road Remains An Alternate Route


Due to the significant amount of debris and the damage done by floodwaters, motorists are advised to avoid Grand Teton Drive between Hualapai Way and Durango Drive. City street crews are working along the Grand Teton corridor to clean and make repairs. Elkhorn remains an alternate route.
City crews continue to work in the northwest area of Las Vegas to clear the muck/debris from affected roadways. Motorists should continue to use caution traveling streets affected by storm runoff, and obey road closures and temporary traffic controls.

Stay up-to-date on road conditions and alert us to issues of black muck and flooding affecting the roadways on Twitter at, or by using #lvroads.
