Boulder City, Nev. – From Aug. 18 through Sep. 18, 2008, a small segment of the River Mountains Loop Trail (RMLT) will close for improvements to accommodate construction activities associated with the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s (SNWA) third intake project. The trail segment to be closed is the section about one-half mile. It is the section from the former site of Lake Mead Cruises (just north of Boulder Harbor on Lakeshore Road), up to the Nevada Department of Wildlife Fish Hatchery.
