GRAND OPENING PLANNED FOR GALLERIA DRIVE EXPANSION
Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen and Councilwoman Gerri Schroder plan to officially open the final stretch of roadway along Galleria Drive from Boulder Highway to Lake Las Vegas with a ceremony at 10 a.m. Oct. 16 at the intersection of Galleria Drive and Dave Wood Circle.
The $12.9 million project was built through a public-private partnership with the city, developers and the Regional Transportation Commission. Lake Las Vegas provided $5.5 million in local
improvement district funding and dedicated right-of-way. The LandWell Company provided $1.1 million in funding and dedicated right-of-way. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada provided $3.7 million, including $1 million in fuel revenue index funds.
Galleria Drive construction passed through the Clark County Wetlands Park, which required coordination with lead agencies, including the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Clark County and the U. S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation.
