The city of North Las Vegas held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for a 12-mile water pipeline to Apex Industrial Park.
The project, an oversize agreement with landowners Solo Investments I LLC and MMesa 319 LLC, will open more than 3,000 acres of land for development and job creation.
The surface water pipeline will be built from North Hollywood Boulevard near Interstate 15 to serve the southern portion of Apex. To serve the northern Apex area, the city is installing a $4 million elevated water storage tank and water line connecting to an existing city well.
Construction is expected to be completed by late 2020.
