Kyle Canyon Road, State Route 157, will be closed from U.S. 95 to the turnoff to Rainbow Canyon Road on Tuesday, Sept. 2 from roughly 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. due to a wide load hauling a 13 foot wide bulldozer.
Motorists are advised to use Lee Canyon Road, State Route 156, as an alternate route and expect delays.
The bulldozer will be utilized for the Flood Diversion Berm project, which is headed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Forest Service and sponsored by the State of Nevada via the Nevada Division of Transportation, Nevada Division of Emergency Management, Nevada Department of Conservation and All-natural Sources and the Nevada Department of Forestry.
The project entails the building of a short-term berm and a diversion channel, which will redirect water and debris to channel behind homes situated along the Rainbow Subdivision on Mount Charleston.
As a outcome of the Carpenter 1 wildfire, which occurred last summer, properties have been broken by floods during the monsoon season.
In addition, flooding also endangers State Route 157, which serves residents and visitors to the recreational facilities.
The around $ 800,000 project is anticipated to start within the subsequent two weeks and will be comprehensive by early November.
