TEMPORARY CLOSURE FEB 10 TO JUNE 30 AT WETLANDS TRAIL TRAILHEAD

BOULDER CITY, Nev. – Portions of Wetland Trail in Lake Mead National Recreation Area will be temporarily closed Feb. 10 through June 30 during the construction of a new grade control structure in the Lower Las Vegas Wash.

The trailhead and parking area on Northshore Road along with adjacent areas will be closed to access, hiking and other recreational uses.

The grade control structure will reduce erosion in the Las Vegas Wash to protect stability of the bridge. It will also reduce sedimentation transported from erosion in the wash into Lake Mead, as well as protect Lake Las Vegas Dam and outlet works.

Funding for this nearly $2.5 million project is provided by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act. The contractor is Wadley Construction, Inc., of Las Vegas.

The National Park Service regrets any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.
