CALLVILLE BAY LAUNCH RAMP UNDERGOING $1.35 MILLION IN IMPROVEMENTS
BOULDER CITY, Nev. – A $1.35 million construction project began Aug. 22 at Lake Mead National Recreation Area to improve the launch ramp at Callville Bay.
The existing upper asphalt portion of the launch ramp will be demolished and removed. It will be replaced with V-grooved reinforced concrete for better traction and drainage. A sidewalk will also be added as part of the improvements.
During construction, the launch ramp will remain open. The upper 300 feet of launch ramp access will be temporarily reduced, to one lane of traffic in and one lane out, from the launch ramp. Congestion is expected to be minimal.
The project is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 30.
Funding for the project was provided by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act. The contractor is Abide International based out of Sonoma, Calif.
