Sahara DMV Office to Close For Remodeling
One-Day Closure Needed for New Flooring
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles and Public Safety branch office at 2701 E. Sahara Ave. in Las Vegas will be closed, Saturday, March 24th, 2001, so contractors can begin the installation of new flooring.
The office will reopen Monday, March 26th, on its normal schedule. The existing multi-colored carpet in this office is being replaced with tile flooring. Construction crews will remove the carpet this Saturday. Installation of the tile will be done in stages over a period of approximately one month.
"This is only one of many steps we are taking to improve service at the Sahara DMV," said DMV&PS Director Richard Kirkland.
Other recent improvements there include an expansion of the testing area for those taking drivers license tests and the partial renovation of the Information Counter area.
Future renovations will include new signage, a display case for special license plates, a lobby television and a repainting of the entire facility.
