Driving You Crazy: Jagged conditions on Durango Drive

LAS VEGAS - Multiple drivers say a stretch of Durango Drive between Tropicana Avenue and Desert Inn Road is jagged and uneven. Many want to know when it will be fixed.

Clark County officials say the problem lies in a sulfur material that was used during the road's construction in 2004. At first, the sulfur material addressed issues with the mix design of the pavement. Over time, however, it caused the road to become jagged and uneven.

In 2012, crews milled down and tried to smooth the road, but it was a temporary solution.

The county has been working for years on a plan to fix Durango. The design is 90 percent finished, and county officials expect to have enough funding by the end of the year. The money comes from the gas tax that people pay when they fill their tanks.

Crews will eventually pulverize, remove and replace pavement on Durango from Tropicana to Desert Inn. Traffic8 will continue to follow this project for further developments.
