Boulder City Parkway Complete Streets

Updates

Construction Notification

Construction activities associated with the Boulder City Parkway Complete Street project are scheduled to commence along Boulder City Parkway between Veteran’s Memorial Dr. and Buchanan Blvd. Construction activity is anticipated to begin the week of August 19, 2019, with a scheduled project duration of 305 calendar days (approximately 10 months). Dates are subject to change.

Project Information

Work will begin along Boulder City Parkway from Veterans Memorial to Rebel Gas Station. Scope of work involves underground utilities, pavement, striping and signage, traffic signals, streetlights, concrete flatwork, and landscaping.  

Construction will require lane restrictions along Boulder City Parkway in phases. Constructing the project in phases should minimize the length of lane restrictions to each phase. Access to residential and business properties will be affected; however, alternate access will be provided. 

A Facebook account has been set up that will provide the community members with frequent notifications on the project activities and status throughout the course of the project. You can find this account at:

Project Description Description

Many roads today are accommodating only to the motor vehicles, and most are undesirable for bicyclist and pedestrian use. As the roadways have widened, traveling by foot or bicycle has become less safe. Developing a complete street design can provide a balance of safety and mobility for everybody that uses the roadway. Elements that make up the complete street include widening sidewalks, constructing dedicated bicycle lanes, bus turn outs, intersection improvements, pedestrian/bike crossing improvements, and median improvements. The National Complete Streets Coalition identified that a complete street will provide the following benefits to all communities:

  • Improve safety and mobility
  • Ease congestion and increase road capacity
  • Improve health by promoting physical activity and opportunities of alternate modes of transportation
  • Grow economy by creating more inviting communities
  • Lower transportation cost by providing transit options

Additionally, complete streets projects can offer improvement in air quality, and ensure access of transportation options for all.

From the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) the City received funding for the design of roadway improvements. The City will use this funding for the Boulder City Parkway Complete Street Project and will follow the RTC's complete street policy. The area of this project is the entire reach of US 93 through the City Limits of Boulder City, from Interstate 11 at Railroad Pass to Pacifica Way. This project will include the complete street elements, transforming this "incomplete street" into a functional and accommodating roadway with multiple transportation alternatives.

The City values our multiple options for transportation, and will work to further enhance our transportation opportunities. Redefining Boulder City Parkway into a complete street provides safety and enhanced mobility for pedestrians, bicyclist, and vehicles.
