River Mountain Loop Trail improvement discussion set

Residents are invited to attend an open house from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 26, to learn more about proposed improvements to the River Mountains Loop Trail. The informal session will be held in the gym at the city’s recreation center, 900 Arizona St.

Boulder City is collaborating with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada to develop a plan that will connect the trail to the proposed new Nevada State Railroad Museum and downtown area. This study will identify routes, design features, amenities and costs.

Those attending the open house will be invited to share their ideas for the project, while learning more about the plan.

For those who cannot attend but would like to comment, contact Monika Bertaki at 702-676-1749 or
