Stretch of Las Vegas Blvd. improved to bolster pedestrian safety

A stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard in North Las Vegas was fitted with a series of improvements aimed at bolstering pedestrian safety.

Without discussion, the North Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday received a notice of completion from the contractor, Addison Inc., which called for installing rapid-flashing beacons, crosswalks, signs, lights and median islands meant to prevent jaywalking on Las Vegas Boulevard, between Evans Avenue and Pecos Road.

The $1.17 million project was funded by Clark County’s fuel revenue indexing tax.
