A construction project is underway to enhance the Boulder Beach area at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
The $1.2 million project includes several improvements to roads and facilities. A new boat wash station will be installed at Hemenway Harbor Road. The fish cleaning and comfort station along Hemenway Harbor Road will also get a new asphalt parking lot.
Horsepower Cove Road will be getting about 1,000 feet of new asphalt. Plus, Lakeview Overlook will have its parking lot rehabilitated, and a historic wall foundation will be reinforced.
The construction will force the Lakeview Overlook, which is off Nevada Highway 172 along the Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail, to be closed December 7 through March 1. The trail will remain open, but there will be occasional temporary closures.
The entire Boulder Beach project is set to be finished in April.
