The Boulder City Public Works Dept. proposed to City Council last night that they approve the construction of our town’s first roundabout at the intersection of Adams Blvd. and Veterans Memorial Highway (you know, right outside Boulder Creek Golf Club).
The goal is to replace the traffic signal with a roundabout in order to improve traffic flow and eliminate wait time at the intersection, which would ultimately reduce idling times and lower emissions (Goal #7 of the City’s strategic plan).
Funding for the project is from the Nevada Department of Transportation (through the Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Funds) and it will cost just over a million dollars ($1,055,632 to be exact). Boulder City is required to contribute “match funds” of 5%, but those can be fulfilled in the form of Public Works staff time toward the project.
The Country Register of Southern Nevada posted on the BC Social Facebook page that the council postponed approval until residents are made aware and can give feedback. So whatcha think? You can jump right to the Facebook post for this topic to weigh in by CLICKING HERE!
