New Sidewalk Ramps Coming to Older Neighborhoods | Seniors
New sidewalks ramps are coming to older neighborhoods of Las Vegas.
The city of Las Vegas has started installing new ramps in two residential areas in an effort to improve the quality of life for people living in that part of the community.
The first area is bounded by Decatur Boulevard, Meadows Lane, Valley View and Charleston boulevards.
The second area is farther east and is bounded by Marion Drive, Charleston Boulevard, Stewart Avenue and the Las Vegas Wash.
The 150 new ramps will improve the look of the neighborhoods and make the areas compliant with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. Crews will also be upgrading 25 existing ramps.
The city is using in-house construction staff to complete the work over the next five months.
