What’s Driving You Crazy? – An all-weekend sewer project

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – An all-weekend marathon sewer project on the valley’s near north side might just drive you crazy.

This work won’t *completely* close the intersection of Cheyenne and Jones, but you should consider any of the number of alternatives.

Starting at 10 Friday night and scheduled to run until 5 Monday morning, north and southbound Jones won’t go through at Cheyenne. East-west travel on Cheyenne will be down to one lane in each direction between Rainbow and Michael Way.

Right turns from either direction of Jones will be allowed onto Cheyenne, but no *left* turns.

A note from the City of Las Vegas says they’re putting in a 42-inch diameter sewer. The workarounds are super easy: for north-south travel – Rainbow or Decatur; Craig or Lake Mead to go east-west. Shout-out to all the crews working their butts off on the project.

Buckle up, drive carefully and put down that phone!... Read More

LIVE: World’s 1st all-female spacewalk

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The world’s first female spacewalking team is making history high above Earth.

NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir exited the International Space Station on Friday, the first time in a half-century of spacewalking that a woman floated out without a male crewmate. Their job is to fix a broken part of the station’s solar power network.

America’s first female spacewalker from 35 years ago, Kathy Sullivan, is delighted. She says it’s good to finally have enough women in the astronaut corps and trained for spacewalking for this to happen.

NASA originally wanted to conduct an all-female spacewalk last spring, but did not have enough medium-size suits ready to go... Read More
