NOTICE: Herbicide Application at Desert Rose Golf Course
As part of the construction of the Las Vegas Wash Project, Clark County will initiate herbicide application on various sections of turf along the perimeter of the Desert Rose Golf Course to abate the growth of grass and weeds throughout the construction site. Over the next few weeks crews will apply herbicide while maintaining irrigation to allow for maximum absorption and effectiveness.
Please note the following:
- The initial application of Ranger Pro herbicide occurred October – November 2013. The Ranger Pro product will be used again.
- The herbicide contains a blue dye to mark areas of application.
- Application will not occur when winds exceed 10 mph.

Vegas Valley Drive Construction Update
The construction work being performed at Vegas Valley Drive is a combination of two concurrent projects: The County’s Las Vegas Wash Improvements from Sloan Channel to Cedar Avenue and the City of Las Vegas Sewer Improvements.
Every effort is made minimize disruptions by coordinating lane restrictions with the City. Sometimes, unforeseen circumstances cause project delays that are not in our control. We understand that this has been a source of concern and frustration for commuters, and we would like to take this opportunity to provide you with the following update.
- Temporary work associated with the Las Vegas Wash Project has been suspended until the reconstruction of the Sahara Avenue Bridge is complete. The contractor will return at a later date to complete additional project improvements.
- The City of Las Vegas Sewer Improvement Project has been underway on Vegas Valley Drive and Cabana Lane for several months. Work is being completed under an approved Encroachment Permit.
- The City’s contractor, performed a pre-final inspection on Cabana Drive and found one area that needs permanent patching. Traffic cones have been removed for now, but the contractor anticipates to be back on site next week to do the patch. NV Energy has also been on site doing some wire pulling related to the City’s project, which has impacted traffic intermittently. That work should be now be complete.
- The City’s contractor is in the process of completing some backfilling, and the barricade plan that has the lane reductions in place will be in effect while that task is completed. This work is expected to be complete by Friday, March 28th at which time the lane restrictions will be removed.
Our inspectors will perform a field check on Friday, March 28th to ensure all work has been completed and the lanes restriction have been removed.
We sincerely regret any inconvenience you have experienced and thank you for your patience.
