LAS VEGAS - A viewer says the intersection at Fort Apache Road and Maule Avenue becomes packed with cars and people every day as school gets out. He says a traffic signal is needed.
The intersection used to contain a two-way stop with marked crosswalks, school flashers, and slower, school zone speed limits. Recently, it became a multi-way stop, but locals say a full signal is needed.
With students streaming in and out of nearby Faiss Middle School and increased traffic during the summer from the recently opened Wet ‘n' Wild water park, a traffic signal may be in order.
Clark County officials conduct yearly traffic studies for this intersection. It never warranted a full signal until recently.
The most recent study took place after Wet ‘n' Wild's opening. Researchers determined a traffic signal is now needed at this intersection. Construction will begin in summer 2014.
