What's Driving You Crazy: Road project in North Las Vegas

NORTH LAS VEGAS -- A bumpy roadway is in desperate need of some re-pavement, but while workers dig up the road, their work seems to be working some driver's nerves.

In Wednesday's installment of "What's driving you crazy?"-- 8 News Now traffic reporter, Demetria Obilor, answers a complaint in North Las Vegas.

Antonio, a resident of North Las Vegas said, that every time he drives north on Losee Road, it's hard to drive past Lone Mountain Road because the street is very uneven and very bumpy. This "driving annoyance" has happened because work crews are in the middle of building a walking bridge across that part of the road.

Sounds straight forward- right? Not so fast! The renovations have left some drivers feeling baffled and wondering if the bridge is really worth it."I'm confused that they're not fixing the road.

Instead they build a useless bridge that doesn't really take anyone anywhere," Antonio, a North Las Vegas resident said. 8 News Now wanted to answer Antonio's question, so our team reached out to the City of North Las Vegas and they told us they gave contractors the green light to start construction on Losee road; a project that stretches from Lone Mountain Road to the 215 Beltway.

The renovations will take about a year, and work has already started near Tropical Parkway. So, what can drivers expect after everything is finished? Only the bees knees of roads and sidewalks, based on what North Las Vegas city officials have told us.

There will be three, travel lanes in each direction, curb and gutter improvements, sidewalks and street lights in developed areas. There will also be asphalt walkways in undeveloped areas.
