Construction on a new development in east Las Vegas is making some neighbors miserable. 

For more than a year, construction crews have been working on a new housing development near Sahara Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard.

Some days, the construction begins so early, it wakes up Alycia Stone's children. 

"They've been doing the construction at 5 o'clock in the morning," Stone said. "There are trucks coming, dropping the equipment. You can hear it drop and hear them honking." 

Stone said construction crews are also playing loud music as they work. That was the tipping point for her. 

After talking to the construction crews and calling Las Vegas police, Stone still wasn't getting results. 

13 Action News reached out to the company in charge of the development and found out the construction workers weren't following the rules. 

Brad Sneed of Harmony Homes told 13 Action News he's asked contractors to begin construction no earlier than 7 a.m. He said they might be starting earlier because of the warmer afternoon temperatures. 

He plans to remind them of the rules. He also gave Stone his number so she can reach out to him directly if the early-morning noise continues.
