The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) has started placing fence posts for a new 18-inch high fence going up between the Foothill Drive exit off U.S. Hwy 95 and southwest Boulder City.

Yep…18 inches high. Because it’s a fence meant to keep our desert tortoise population safe while Phase 1 of the Boulder City Bypass gets underway.

More information about the new fence and some really interesting facts and information about the Boulder City Bypass are in a Las Vegas Review Journal article today that you can read by clicking here. Enjoy!
