HENDERSON, Nev. - The flood channel near Horizon Ridge Parkway and Arroyo Grande Boulevard has left flood debris in nearby neighborhoods. Viewers want to know when crews will finish roads and curbs to alleviate the problem.
Officials completed this flood channel in Henderson last summer. Flooding still happens there, because the area contains a significant amount of undeveloped land. Half-completed roads can also be found. The parts of the roads that are completed lack curbs and gutters which would help maintain and direct storm water.
Without those curbs and gutters, heavy rainfall can cause free-flowing flood waters.
One issue is getting developers to finish the roads. City of Henderson officials say they are addressing the issue. They plan to have a drainage study determine flow rates and identify flow patterns. One possible fix would be installing storm drains that could alleviate flood waters if runoff exceeds the road's capacity.
