Prepare for Big Blasts Near Fort Apache Road


There is no shortage of construction cones around Las Vegas, but this weekend the construction noise could include a very loud blast, as the Fort Apache Road widening project continues.

If you live in the area around Fort Apache and Warm Springs, don't be surprised if you hear a big blast from crews working to remove part of a rock slope on Friday and Tuesday.

The Clark County Public Works Department says that the blasts will remove up to 19-feet of rock slope and over 10,000 cubic yards of rock.

Once completed, Fort Apache Road will have two lanes both north and south, along with bike lanes, street lights and even new flood control measures. This project should be completed this July.

Drivers will want to avoid getting on the road for half-an-hour both Friday and Tuesday around noon.

They will be shutting the road down from Warm Springs. If you're wondering how you will be able to get around the rocky road, traffic will be diverted down to Durango and motorists to be able to get back on Fort Apache. If you're heading southbound on Fort Apache, Pebble Road would be the detour to get back on Fort Apache.
