Road into Henderson’s Tuscany Village community faces rerouting

Neighborhood entrance

The dozens of Tuscany Village residents who showed up to dispute the realignment of Mohawk Drive will have to wait a few more weeks to have their opinions heard.

The Henderson Development Council issued a continuance of community comments in hopes that the disputing parties might come to a compromise before the new meeting, scheduled for April 11.

Representatives from the Tuscany Village Home Owners Association are disputing the alteration of Mohawk Drive — the main road into the neighborhood — saying that the rerouted road would increase commute time and make it more difficult and dangerous to turn left onto Lake Mead Parkway from its new intersection.

Bill Curran, the lawyer for Tuscany Village, said the alternatives the developers from the Cadence project have presented for the rerouted road are implausible.

“We need to gather more information,” he said. “We need to look at their traffic study.”

The alternatives presented by the Cadence project will increase commuters' travel by just under a mile one way.

“We’ll do whatever the planning board wants and we always have," said Mathew Driscoll, a spokesman for the Cadence project. “We feel we’ve really gone out of our way in presenting these alternatives.”
