Beltway Lanes Reopen Monday

Clark County Public Works will be re-opening the “mainline” eastbound and westbound lanes of the 215 Beltway at North 5th Street by Monday.

Traffic at the interchange now under construction had been routed off the depressed mainline lanes and onto temporary lanes. The opening of the mainline roads at the interchange, located between Losee Road and Aliante Parkway, will start at 9 p.m. Sunday and all traffic control changes are expected to be complete by 5 a.m. Monday.

Eastbound traffic will continue to have access at all times to North 5th Street to the south, to and from the eastbound Beltway. Westbound access to North 5th Street remains unavailable to and from the Beltway until this fall.

The westbound off- and on-ramps at North 5th Street exit will be closed to vehicular traffic in order to complete construction of the North 5th Street Bridge.

Police Join in National Seat Belt Enforcement

Police Join in National Seat Belt Enforcement

North Las Vegas Police are joining in with a national effort to enforce seat belt laws.

The Click it or Ticket campaign starts on Sunday in North Las Vegas. Police will be out at the busiest streets in the city looking for people who are not wearing their seat belts and at intersections with a history of multiple crashes. People caught not wearing their seat belt will get a $72 fine. People with children in the car who are not properly restrained will face a $192 fine.

Nevada state law requires children under 6 years-old or 60 pounds to  be restrained in a car or booster seat. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends children sit in the back seat until they're 12. 

Lane Restrictions for Northern Beltway Begin

The northern 215 beltway will be down to two lanes starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday.

The restrictions will be in place between Aliante Parkway and North 5th Street in North Las Vegas. The closures will be in place for the next two months while crews work on repaving the road. Both the eastbound and westbound lanes will be reduced to just one lane. Clark County is encouraging people to find an alternate route around the construction because it is expected to cause serious delays.

The paving project is expected to be finished by July.

 

Police Target Crosswalks for Pedestrian Safety

Police Target Crosswalks for Pedestrian Safety

North Las Vegas Police will be targeting crosswalks around the city today in an effort to keep pedestrians safe.

Officers will focus on mid-block crosswalks in some of the most traveled streets in the city from 5 to 7 p.m. Police will be looking for drivers who don't stop for pedestrians. They'll also be looking for pedestrians that don't use the properly marked crosswalks.

The push is part of an effort launched by the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety to cut down on auto-pedestrian accidents.

Police Focusing on Pedestrian Safety Today

Police Focusing on Pedestrian Safety Today

Through 5 p.m. today, officers with the North Las Vegas Police Department and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department will conduct a "Joining Forces" Speed/Pedestrian Enforcement Event. During this event, officers will focus their efforts on drivers who fail to obey posted speed limits, drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and pedestrians who fail to use crosswalks.
 
Officers will conduct directed patrol on major thoroughfares throughout the City of North Las Vegas concentrating on areas with high vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
 
The speed of a vehicle involved in an accident can significantly contribute to the serious injury or death of the persons involved, especially pedestrians.
