LAS VEGAS - Las Vegas drivers are frustrated with long traffic lights and construction delays along Valley View Boulevard between Charleston Boulevard and U.S. 95.
Drivers say the signals appear to be on timers instead of responding to traffic conditions, causing maddening delays.
The issue is not just traffic lights, but a street under construction. Valley View is being widened from U.S. 95 to Desert Inn Road.
The winding path sends drivers past construction equipment, around cones and through one lane of traffic in some spots. All the traffic on Valley View is being pushed to one side of the road.
All that work and lack of driver space caused the city to adjust the signals. Green lights for northbound and southbound traffic alternate instead of both directions receiving green lights simultaneously.
This is due to the limited space, and it explains why drivers are getting stuck at red lights. 8 News NOW has asked the city if any changes can be made to ease the traffic congestion and is waiting for a response.
In the meantime, drivers are urged to use alternate routes such as Decatur Boulevard.
