What Will They Do With the Blue Diamond Choo-Choo?

 Growth in the south end of the valley has outpaced infrastructure development (once again!)  

Blue Diamond separates Mountain's Edge, Southern Highlands, Arlington Ranch and many other fine communities from the "other end of the earth".  It is a two lane highway that is known as a death trap.  Rental and Resale values are lower "on the other side" also. 

So far Blue Diamond has been widened (and it is such a beautiful thing!) from the I-15 to just west of Decatur.  Four, sometimes five, six, seven or eight lanes if you want to count turn lanes!

Then you hit the tracks.  Always running down Blue Diamond, especially if you are on a schedule you are spanning the industrial area and desert to see if a train is coming and if one is you just take a deep breath after you say NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooo!  Time to adjust the radio, make a phone call or check your email.  Gotta love technology these days.

So I have been wondering the last couple of months, what are they going to do with the train tracks between Jones & Decatur.  Is Blue Diamond going to go OVER the tracks or will the tracks go OVER Blue Diamond.  I hate when I am forced to think while waiting for a train in traffic.

Here are some resources: 

NDOT 

Clark County Projects 

My answers were easily found doing a google search: in the LVRJ "Road Warrior" column on Sept 5, 2007.  The road will go over the tracks! Now if they could just hurry up a bit!
