BLM TO HOST PUBLIC MEETING ON ROAD IMPROVEMENTS AUG. 12

The Bureau of Land Management’s Red Rock/Sloan Field Office plans a public meeting at 2 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area’s Visitor Center, 1000 Scenic Loop Drive, on proposed road improvements on state Route160 west from state Route 159 to Mountain Springs.

The Nevada Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration, is completing an environmental assessment for the proposed project, and the BLM and U.S. Forest service are cooperating agencies.

The preferred alternative includes widening state Route 160 to four lanes, an 8-foot shoulder (bicycle-compliant) and a 14-foot median (raised islands with left-turn pockets into the Mountain Springs area) for its 11-mile length, along with other enhancements. The project is proposed in two phases. The estimated cost is $60 million to $70 million.

To attend, alert the fee booth at the entrance that you are participating in the open house, and fees will be waived.
