II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: In an attempt to get another 10 years or more of use from the current parking facilities located at the NSRM in Boulder City…it’s proposed to perform pavement repairs as necessary, fill expansion cracks and re-seal existing asphalt driveways/parking lots using an asphalt slurry seal coating on approx. 32,860 sq. ft. (total) of existing pavement. In addition, all new parking lot striping will be required upon completion. The asphalt pavement at the Railroad Maintenance Facility (600 Yucca Street) is approaching the 20 year mark and is in serious need for attention before any further damage and deterioration occurs, as there are numerous stress cracks throughout the pavement. The driveway is approx. 322’ x 25’ and includes 10 parking spaces (approx. 100’ x 22’) that accommodate this particular part of the museum facility (a total of 10,250 sq. ft.). As for the existing parking lot at the Railroad Passenger Facilities (601 Yucca Street)….it’s approaching the 15 year mark and is in considerable need of having stress cracks filled and the entire surface re-sealed and re-stripped to help prevent any further damage due to the heavy use it receives. The current parking lot accommodates a total of 49 parking spaces and is approx. 323’ x 70’ is size (22,610 sq. ft.).
2. Project Justification: The Nevada State Railroad Museum/BC is in its thirteenth year of operation (to the public) and has seen tremendous growth during that time. As a result, the facility has been dealing with the strains of growth and increased activity at both the Railroad Maintenance Facility (600 Yucca St) and the Railroad Passenger Complex (601 Yucca Street). The current maintenance facility was completed in 1996 and the existing pavement has been exposed to heavy use since then. This particular part of the facility sees numerous trucks, heavy equipment and heavy loads accessing the shop. In addition, the current visitor parking lot at the railroad passenger complex were in completed in 2000 and are routinely subjected to heavy use during our normal hours of operation and special events. Both facilities are subjected to the extreme heat related conditions found here in southern Nevada and have endured numerous flash floods over the years that have contributed to the damage and erosion of the pavement . The main goal of this project to preserve and extend the usefulness of current asphalt pavement for another 10 years and to ensure that the NSRM/BC continues to deliver highest quality attraction for families, train enthusiasts, educators, and individuals who are interested in the cultural experience of Southern Nevada.
3. Project Background Information: Currently, the NSRM/BC consists of a Railroad Maintenance Facility (600 Yucca St.) and a Railroad Passenger Complex (601 Yucca St.), which is located within the ex-Union Pacific Rail Yards in Boulder City, NV. However, Yucca Street separates the two facilities from one another. The Railroad Maintenance Facility was constructed in 1996 and is utilized for the ongoing maintenance needs of maintaining the railroad equipment used within the Nevada Southern Railroad. The facility is also utilized for all other maintenance related needs required for the upkeep of the NSRM. The Railroad Passenger Platform was completed in 2000 and serves as the main focal point within the Railroad Visitors/Passenger Complex. This particular part of the facility has accommodated as many as 42,000 visitors (yearly) and continually sees heavy use during peak periods of visitation and special events. This application will be the first attempt in which this project has been submitted for consideration.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced: N/A
b. Year existing equipment was installed: N/A
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: N/A
d. Model of existing equipment: N/A
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If not approved, the NSRM/BC will be unable to adequately prevent any further deterioration to the existing pavement due to on-going age, normal wear, weather related exposure and heavy loads. Some of the ramifications could include; • Inconvenience to museum visitors by traversing over poor pavement conditions. • Continued difficulties in properly maintaining safe parking facilities. • Higher costs at later date, due to further deterioration or possibly new pavement replacement. • Possible vehicular damage due poor pavement conditions (such has tires, etc.). • Negative impressions due to unmaintained appearance or lack of care.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
6. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): If left undone and allowed further deterioration of the existing asphalt pavement, the NSRM/BC could be faced with a number of issues related to visitor’s safety. They might include issues related to tripping or stumbling hazards caused by excessive cracks or pot holes in the pavement. In addition, the NSRM has a responsibility to maintain safe and accessible parking facilities for handicapped visitors that are safe from obstructions due to poor surface conditions.
