Lake Mead Boulevard (S.R. 147)
NDOT is planning $6.5 million in pedestrian and motorist safety upgrades along Lake Mead Boulevard from Civic Center Drive to Pecos Road in North Las Vegas. Proposed improvements call for narrowing outside travel lanes for widened sidewalks, reconstructing drop inlets, creating handicap complaint driveways and crossway ramps, replacing two-left lane turns with a raised median, and constructing two new pedestrian crossings with refuge islands and beacon warnings. Construction is expected to begin in early 2017 with anticipated completion in 2018.
Charleston Boulevard (S.R. 159)
NDOT is planning $2 million in pedestrian and motorist safety upgrades along Charleston Boulevard from Hillside Place to Burnham Avenue, and between Arden Street and Nellis Boulevard in Las Vegas. The mile-long stretch of improvements call for pedestrian bulb outs and rapid flashing beacons at the intersections of Hillside Place, 17th Street and Burnham Avenue as well as median widening and travel lane restriping from Arden Street to Nellis Boulevard. Other enhancements include constructing handicap ramps and raising worm median islands while extending the eastbound to northbound left turns at Charleston and Nellis boulevards. Construction is expected to begin late summer, with anticipated completion in early 2017.
Boulder Highway (S.R. 582) at Sun Valley Drive
NDOT this summer will install an overhead rapid flashing beacon and Danish-offset median island at Boulder Highway and Sun Valley Drive, near the Eastside Cannery. The six-month project will also close left-hand vehicle turns, thereby eliminating pedestrian conflicts.
Craig Road (S.R. 573)
Proposed improvements for Craig Road between Decatur Boulevard and North Fifth Street in North Las Vegas, including wider sidewalks, better lighting, and pedestrian crosswalks as well as bicycle lanes, raised medians, and enhanced transit.
Las Vegas Boulevard (S.R. 604) Reconstruction in North Las Vegas
NDOT will reconstruct Las Vegas Boulevard between Carey Avenue to Craig Road in North Las Vegas, adding concrete bus and bike lanes, plus new asphalt roadway, sidewalks and median islands with two mid-block pedestrian crossings with overhead flashing beacons. The estimated $17.5 million project will begin in late fall with anticipated completion by early spring 2018.
