LAS VEGAS - A viewer says a crosswalk at Flamingo Road and Cameron Street is not clearly marked, making the area dangerous for pedestrians.
There is no street light in this area, but there are signs that warn drivers of pedestrians crossing. Many drivers, however, travel along this stretch of road at approximately 45- 50 miles per hour and do not see the pedestrians.
The road is also wide, making it less likely that drivers will see pedestrians as they cross the street.
Representatives with the Regional Transportation Commission say they are working on this problem with Clark County Public Works. The area is part of the Flamingo Corridor Improvements Project, which is going to include approximately 86 street upgrades, new transit shelters, signal improvements and more.
RTC and Clark County have worked out preliminary design plans for this area. Crews will upgrade the lighting at this intersection and plan to install new equipment to make pedestrians and the crosswalk more visible.
An enhanced pedestrian crossing element will be installed, but it is still unclear what kind of element will be used.
RTC & the county expect to present finalized construction plans to the public at the end of September.
