City and county crews went to work on Las Vegas Valley roads Tuesday morning to repair the mess the previous day’s showers left behind.
Ranch Road in Moapa and the National Park Service’s section of Nelson Road were the only closures that persisted at 10 a.m. Tuesday, but plenty of other roads were being cleared and repaired, according to Clark County spokeswoman Stacey Welling.
Lindell Road, the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Fort Apache Road, Mount Potosi Road near the Boy Scout camp, and Arroyo Road in Blue Diamond were all scheduled for either debris removal or infrastructure repair, Welling said.
“City crews made big strides in cleaning the northwest area yesterday,” city spokeswoman Diana R. Paul said, “but the area was hit with even more rain causing more clean-up.”
Crews will also work through the end of the week to clean up roads on the east side, near St. Louis and Eastern, Paul said. She advised Las Vegas residents to drive carefully and be patient.
