Notes
Survey number HAER NV-22
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
Significance: Lakeshore Road and associated road features have been determined locally significant under National Register Criteria A and C. Construction of the road opened Lake Mead NRA, an early and major southwestern recreational area, to development and tourism. Construction of the road and associated features reflect building techniques employed in southern Nevada during the 1940's, as well as construction modifications necessitated by defense buildup prior to World War II. While the road itself has been extensively modified through time, its alignment and associated features (headwalls, culverts, gutters) retain good to excellent integrity.
