New Transportation Service for Seniors Launches April 7

New Transportation Service for Seniors Launches April 7

Seniors in the Anthem and Seven Hills neighborhoods will have a new transportation option beginning April 7.

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) together with ITNLasVegasValley and Easter Seals Southern Nevada recently announced a new door-to-door transportation service for seniors over the age of 60 and paratransit-eligible customers who reside in Henderson. RTC officials handed over the keys to two state-of-the-art paratransit equipped minivans to the service provider ITNLasVegasValley and seniors who live in the community.

"Our partnership with Easter Seals Southern Nevada and ITNLasVegasValley, both non-profit organizations, made it possible for seniors and paratransit-eligible customers in this community to access door-to-door transportation service," said Jacob Snow, RTC general manager.

City to replace 500 school zone signs

City to replace 500 school zone signs

The City of Henderson plans to replace 500 school zone speed limit signs this month, asking drivers to observe posted limits when children are present instead of during specific times. 

Work to change out the signs will begin at Taylor Elementary School, Brown Middle School and Basic High School in the east of Henderson and then continue to the west. The project is anticipated to be completed by December.

Research data indicates motorists drive slower through school zones marked by “When Children Are Present” signs, resulting in increased pedestrian safety in school zones. The change in signage will also match other jurisdictions, so that motorists will see uniformity in school zone speed limit signage across the valley.

"Fostering a safe community is one of our goals in Henderson," Mayor Andy Hafen said.

Lane Closures on Green Valley Parkway Starting Today

Heads up, commuters- if your drive home involves the stretch of Green Valley Parkway, between Warm Springs Road and Windmill Parkway, you will want to find a different route for the rest of the week. Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) is performing track repairs on Green Valley where their rail line crosses. Work began today and will continue through Saturday, closing travel lanes on Green Valley Parkway.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and utilize alternate routes if possible, such as Pecos Road or Valle Verde Drive.

Future UPRR repairs will involve roadway crossings at Gibson Road, Stephanie Street, Valle Verde Drive and Arroyo Grande Boulevard. Each rail line and roadway crossing repair requires partial lane closures for three to four days.
