The City of Henderson has launched a new website, cityofhenderson.com/boulderhighway, to help keep residents and businesses informed of the upcoming Reimagine Boulder Highway project, slated to begin next year.
The website will be the most updated source of information about the Henderson project, including an FAQ page, fact sheets, resources, public meetings and more.
Henderson’s portion of Reimagine Boulder Highway encompasses 7.5 miles, stretching from Tulip Falls Drive to Wagon Wheel Drive. The City of Henderson is the first jurisdiction to begin work on the historic corridor.
The project encompasses several safety improvements, including:
- Lane reductions to calm traffic and speed
- Center-lane Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for safer pedestrian access
- Additional streetlights
- Widened sidewalks
- Enhanced bike lanes
Reimagine Boulder Highway also enhances the City’s sustainability efforts through water conservation. More than 500,000 square feet of useless grass is being removed along with diseased and water-thirsty trees and replaced with water-smart landscape. Center median landscaping was removed in preparation of the future center-running BRT lanes. These efforts will save more than 46 million gallons of water annually, and will comply with Assembly Bill 356, which prohibits using Colorado River water to irrigate landscape in medians and public right-of-ways.
The $120 million project is being funded with a federal grant and by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) and the City of Henderson, and construction is anticipated to take 20 months.
