Federal grant will bring public art to Maryland Parkway Project

Federal grant will bring public art to Maryland Parkway Project

The plan to improve Maryland Parkway from McCarran Airport to downtown will now include public art thanks to a federal grant.

The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded the project a $50,000 grant. It is one of 66 projects around the country to get money from the $5 million “Our Town” grants.

The money from the NEA is only the beginning. Clark County, the City of Las Vegas and UNLV will all contribute $10,000 to the art project. Plus, the Urban Land Institute will give in-kind support so that all together more than $100,000 will be available for public art along Maryland Parkway.

Those involved in the project say the money will allow planners to create a cohesive and creative design along the length of the Maryland Parkway Project.

Getting to and from McCarran International Airport will become more difficult just in time for one of the busiest travel times of the year.

The highway off ramp from westbound 215 to the Airport Connector will be closed for repair work every night starting Dec. 1 to Dec. 14 and then again from Dec. 18 to Dec. 22.

The closures will be from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. each night. However, the ramp will be closed completely both day and night Dec. 15 through Dec. 17.

Crews are working on widening a section of I-215, along with bridges over Paradise Road, Warm Springs Road, Robindale Road, Duck Creek and the Airport Connector.

The entire project is expected to be finished in January.

Drivers expecting to use the off ramp should find an alternate route and give themselves extra time to get to their destination.
