A viewer reached out to us on Facebook, saying she has been dealing with crazy construction on her street in Boulder City.

13 Action News had Chopper 13 fly over Utah Street, and it turns out, the area is covered in construction cones.

That's when we reached out to the Boulder City public information officer. It turns out the project was taking longer than it was scheduled to, and there are a few reasons for it.

First, the contractor ran into some issues with the underground electric system. They ran into some hard material while digging so that slowed down production. Finally, there were changes and additions the city made during construction.

Some good news though for people who live in the area: the paving is finally done! There are still some restrictions up. The contractor is wrapping up a few things right now, but they should be completely out of there in the next few weeks.
