Transportation

Three roads are closed in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area because of flash flooding, the park service announced Monday.

Kingman Wash Access Road, a dirt road in Arizona that leads to Lake Mead, is washed out.

Temple Bar Access Road, a main road in Arizona that leads to Temple Bar Marina on Lake Mead, is impassible because flood waters are flowing across the road at Detrital Wash.

Nevada State Route 165, which leads to Nelson Landing and Placer Cove, inside the park, is closed because of flooding and road degradation.

Willow Beach Access Road, the main road in Arizona that leads to Willow Beach Marina on Lake Mohave, was closed because of debris. It was reopened Monday morning.

The weather service reports that the Lake Mead area received .68 inches of rain overnight. More rain is expected Monday afternoon.

Northshore Road and Lakeshore Road, which are the two main roads around Lake Mead, are open; however, there is gravel and debris on the road ways from the floods.
