BOULDER CITY – City leaders joined the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) and Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) in celebrating the completion of the Boulder City Parkway Complete Street Project. Phase I of the Boulder City Parkway Complete Street Project started on August 19. In less than a year, the project added landscaped medians, new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, pedestrian crossings and more to a stretch of the Parkway between Veterans Memorial Drive and Buchanan Boulevard.
The project cost $18.2 million dollars, which includes design, construction and construction administration, funded by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada and the Nevada Department of Transportation. The final investment for Boulder City was $626,380, paying for much needed removal and replacement an aged section of the sewer main; replacing water services, and amenities such as bike racks, benches and trash cans.
“We would not have been able to do this project without the support of RTC and NDOT,” said Mayor Kiernan McManus. “We greatly appreciate their investment in this truly regional artery, as this project will make the entry of our community inviting and welcoming to people from around the world.”
City Manager Al Noyola credited teamwork for the project’s success. “I appreciate the input and cooperation of our businesses, who were involved in everything from the design phase to the final product,” Noyola said. “In addition to the great partnership with RTC and NDOT, we had an excellent, responsive contractor in William Charles Construction. They worked closely with businesses to make sure they knew each step along the way and listened to ideas and concerns.”
“Boulder City is a small town, but with an estimated 9 million visitors to Lake Mead a year, we are definitely a busy attraction,” said Keegan Littrell, Public Works Director. “Making our main road into town more pleasing to the eye should encourage visitors to make a stop by one of our amazing businesses to shop, eat, and enjoy our great City.”
