Title: Warm Springs Bridge to Open to Full Configuration on Aug. 31.

Story Text:

LAS VEGAS – The Warm Springs Bridge will open to full configuration—three lanes in each direction—by 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31. The bridge is part of the I-15 South Design-Build Project, a $246.5 million project designed to improve safety, mobility and accessibility in one of the interstate’s most heavily trafficked areas (Tropicana Avenue to just south of Silverado Ranch Boulevard). The Nevada Department of Transportation, general contractor Las Vegas Paving, and the project’s financier, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, along with various stakeholders celebrated the grand opening and ribbon cutting on Aug. 15. The six-lane road stretches from Las Vegas Boulevard on the east to Dean Martin Drive on the west.
