Las Vegas Wash from Sloan Channel to Bonanza Road and Flamingo Wash below Nellis Boulevard Improvements
This project will provide 4 miles of flood control improvements to four sections of the Las Vegas and Flamingo Washes through existing residential neighborhoods and commercial developments. Changes to FEMA’s high risk flood zone area mapping in 2011, which affected 1,700 homes and businesses, combined with record rains in 2012, demonstrated a clear need for improvements to the Washes. The storms of 2012 impacted many residents in the area and the Desert Rose Golf Course.
The planned improvements include a concrete channel lining from Bonanza Road to Nellis Boulevard and from Sloan Lane to the Sloan Channel Confluence on the Las Vegas Wash; bridge and roadway reconstruction on Sahara Avenue; sanitary sewer relocation along Flamingo Wash; and redevelopment of the Desert Rose Golf Course along the Las Vegas and Flamingo Washes. The golf course will be reshaped and regraded to contain the 100-year storm event. The improvements will accommodate the existing and future trail improvements through the corridor.
