Chinatown Plaza Stairway Repairs: Ensuring Safety and Accessibility for All Visitors
In a previous report from March, it was noted that the center stairs leading to the second floor of Chinatown Plaza faced structural issues. An important development regarding this issue has now come to light. The Clark County Building Department has taken action by cordoning off the stairway entrances with yellow tape and posting warning placards. These placards specify that entry is restricted to emergency personnel and authorized construction workers and repair personnel.
Thankfully, the left and right side stairs leading to the second floor remain unaffected and are safe for public use. Information received indicates that necessary repairs for the center stairway are currently in progress and will be carried out in a timely manner.
During this period, cooperation and understanding from all visitors are greatly appreciated. Updates on the repair progress will be provided as soon as available, as the safety and convenience of Chinatown Plaza patrons remain a top priority.
