City Of Las Vegas Continuing Cleanup Effort Relating To Last Year’s Floods In Northwest
Debris To Be Removed From Kyle Canyon Detention Basin


 Work will begin on Tuesday to remove debris that accumulated in the Kyle Canyon Detention Basin and to transport it to the Apex Regional Landfill. It is estimated that it will take crews from Las Vegas Paving 10 working days to remove approximately 25,000 tons of debris.

 Residents should be aware that there are 64 trips projected per day, which may impact traffic in the northwest. The trucks will exit from the detention basin and proceed eastbound on Grand Teton Drive, north on Grand Canyon Drive and enter U.S. 95 at the Horse Drive interchange. Once on the highway, crews will exit southbound on Durango Drive, then take Oso Blanco to the 215 Beltway, which they will take eastbound to the landfill.

 The return trip will take crews from the 215 Beltway to Sky Point Drive, which they will exit and then take to Buffalo Drive and on to U.S. 95.
This may have a limited impact on traffic, as it has been identified as the fastest and least intrusive route available.

Las Vegas Paving has been hired by the city to remove the debris that was collected by the northwest floods last year.
