HENDERSON, Nev. - A viewer says she is worried about speeders along Eastgate Road between Galleria Drive and Sunset. With nearby Cowabunga Bay Water Park now open, she wants to know if speed bumps can be installed along Eastgate.
Henderson officials say speed bumps are not allowed on Eastgate Road, because emergency crews use it as a shortcut; Eastgate is an emergency route. Henderson does not consider it a residential street, even though it runs behind many homes.
While speed bumps are not feasible, increased enforcement is.
The Henderson Police Department has highlighted Eastgate Road as a potential trouble zone, especially with the recent opening of Cowabunga Bay. Police recognize that people who did not previously use Eastgate will now use it as a convenient way to get to the water park.
