Carey DMV Office to Close for Remodeling
All New Counters Will Eliminate Standing in Line
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles and Public Safety branch at 4021 West Carey Ave. in North Las Vegas will be closed to the public beginning this Saturday for a remodeling project.
All new counters will be installed in the office along with a new information center. New tile, carpeting and paint are also part of the $158,000 project. R. Jackson Enterprises of Las Vegas is the general contractor.
The new, lower counters will replace the current type, which require customers to stand. Chairs in the lobby will replace the current standing lines, as the remodeled Carey branch will also feature the Q-Matic 'take a number' system.
Friday, April 28th will be the last day serving customers at Carey. The office will be closed to the public for the next three weeks, reopening on Monday, May 22nd. The DMV technicians who normally work at Carey will be temporarily reassigned to the other four DMV branches in the valley.
Two staff members will be stationed in the parking lot at Carey to explain the remodel to customers and to hand out maps to the other DMV offices.
