ALERT

Public advised of hazardous conditions on Alamo Road on the Desert National Wildlife Refuge

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues a strong warning regarding travel on the road

LAS VEGAS — Motorists wishing to drive on Alamo Road stand a very good chance of getting stuck at Desert Dry Lake. The dirt on the road has turned to powder, which is also referred to as “poof dirt.” The conditions are very hazardous.

“Given the extreme heat and the slim chances of being found quickly, anyone whose vehicle gets stuck in that area is putting their life at risk,” said Christy Smith, Project Leader for the Desert National Wildlife Refuge Complex. “We cannot overstate the hazards drivers will encounter along this route.”

Additional information will be issued as conditions warrant.

The Desert NWR (http://www.fws.gov/refuge/desert/) is approximately 23 miles north of Las Vegas on U.S. Highway 95. Signs on both sides of the highway mark the entrance to the four-mile paved road leading to Corn Creek. At 1.6-million acres, it is the largest national wildlife refuge in the continental United States ― second in size in the entire U.S. to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska (19.3-million acres). For more information, visit the wildlife refuge at the above Internet address or call the staff at (702) 879-6110.
