F Street Connection Project (underneath I-15)

This multimillion-dollar project will reopen F Street underneath I-15 near downtown Las Vegas. Since 2010, the City of Las Vegas and NDOT have been working with elected officials and community leaders on a reopening plan. This effort has involved citizen input on the design, aesthetics and more. Construction will take approximately 20 months and finish in late 2014.

UPDATE: AUGUST 2014

  • All of the bridge structures are complete, and the soffit fill under the bridges has been completely excavated, so now you can see from F Street to Bonanza.
  • The first of two “Historic Westside” sound walls have been poured.
  • F Street has been paved from Washington to McWilliams.
  • Project projected completion date is late November.
  • The D Street on ramp to I-15 southbound is expected to be open sometime in October.

I-15 Cactus Avenue Interchange Project

Construction on the I-15 Cactus Interchange Project is underway. This project will reduce congestion on I-15 in the rapidly growing sectors of the Las Vegas Valley and provide a connection for regional traffic for motorists traveling within Clark County, the city of Las Vegas and the city of Henderson. In addition, the project will provide an alternative route to the rapidly-expanding southwestern sector of the Las Vegas Valley. The total project cost is estimated between $62 million. Construction began on April 1, 2013, and is expected to be completed in Fall 2014.

As the project progresses, motorists can expect lane closures in and around the project area. Updates will be posted to this page and, in some cases, distributed via NDOT's social media mechanisms. Motorists can expect lane reductions and traffic shifts on I-15 between Silverado Ranch and St. Rose Parkway as part of the I-15 interchange project at Cactus Avenue.

U.S. 95 Northwest Corridor Improvements

US 95 NW for Projects Page

This multi-phase, multi-year project will improve U.S. 95 from Washington Avenue to Kyle Canyon Road in northwestern Las Vegas by adding lanes, constructing interchanges at Horse Drive and Kyle Canyon Road and creating a system-to-system interchange between U.S. 95 and CC 215, along with other improvements, including aesthetics.

Phase 1, which stretches from Washington Avenue to Ann Road, is complete. Phase 4, which included a new interchange at Horse Drive and U.S. 95, was complete in 2011. Phases 2 and 3 are currently in the final design phases and will proceed when funding becomes available. Phase 5 is scheduled to begin construction in 2018 or later, pending funding. Phases 2 and 5 are in partnership with the City of Las Vegas; Phase 3 is a partnership between NDOT, the City of Las Vegas and Clark County.

The project is currently in Phase 2. The Phase 2 improvements have been divided into two separate contracts for construction. Phase 2A will widen U.S. 95 from Ann Road to Durango Drive and Phase 2B will widen U.S. 95 from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road.

Current/Upcoming Construction - June 2014

Phase 2 improvements consist of the following:

  • Widening U.S. 95 to three lanes in each direction from Ann Road to Centennial Parkway and adding an HOV lane and auxiliary lanes in each direction.
  • Widening U.S. 95 to three lanes in each direction from Centennial Parkway to Durango Drive and adding an HOV lane and auxiliary lanes in each direction.
  • Widening U.S. 95 to three lanes in each direction from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road and adding auxiliary lanes in each direction.
  • Building a new park-and-ride facility in the southwest quadrant of the U.S. 95/Durango Drive interchange.
  • Building sound walls in noise sensitive areas.
  • Implementing drainage, lighting, signing and ITS improvements.
  • Improving landscape and aesthetic features.
  • Relocating utilities as necessary.

Mount Charleston (Kyle Canyon Widening and Improvements)

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will implement lane restrictions on Kyle Canyon Road (State Route 157) starting at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct.2. Kyle Canyon will be reduced to one lane in a roughly four-mile stretch encompassing the actual work zone (Mile Markers 3.5 and 5.5). The widening and improvements project is part of a collaborative, multi-agency effort funded and supported by FHWA, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS).

The project includes adding approximately 17 miles of road shoulder/bike lanes and two roundabouts to Kyle Canyon Road and an additional roundabout to Lee Canyon Road to improve access near developed recreation sites. During construction, travel will be reduced to one lane of traffic and delays are expected. Motorists are advised to plan accordingly. The initial work involves clearing and grubbing operations. The project is expected to finish in late 2014.

A scenic byway maintained by NDOT, Kyle Canyon Road is an important transportation corridor for approximately 400 residents in Mount Charleston, Rainbow and Echo subdivisions and businesses in upper Kyle Canyon. This road is also a designated Forest Highway, serving as a primary access route for visitors to the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area managed by USFS as well as the Red Rock Conservation Area managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Funding and support for this project comes from several agencies and construction will be overseen by the FHWA.

UPDATE: AUGUST 2014

Below is a brief summary of construction activities and traffic control procedures for recent weeks and upcoming weeks.

Kyle Canyon Road

  • Pulverize and pave work will be ongoing. Pulverize and pave work will be completed to the first lift of pavement in one mile segments. Prior to the weekend, all unpaved sections of roadway will have a primed surface to minimize the need for dust control and maintenance. Anticipate that there will be a primed surface one mile or less each weekend (with the exception of Labor Day Weekend).
  • Currently working one-mile segments beginning at MP 5.0 heading east.
  • Place concrete for sidewalk at East Roundabout.
  • Complete Drop Inlet work.
  • Complete curb work.
  • Traffic Control: Lane closure with flaggers and pilot car.
  • Work Schedule: Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. (May go longer than 10 hours if necessary, no later than 30 minutes before Sunset).
  • LABOR DAY WEEKEND: No work from August 29th till September 1st.

Lee Canyon Road

  • Concrete pavement work ongoing for the next two weeks.
  • Scheduled to pave approaches to roundabout next week.
  • Traffic Control: Lane closure with flaggers as needed.

APRIL 2014

Repaving Marks Next Phase on Kyle Canyon Widening and Improvements Project: Crews are removing pavement from Milepost 4 to Milepost 5 in order to work on new roundabouts. Once the pavement is removed, the public will be riding on a surface comprised of dirt and compacted millings for two to three months while the roundabouts are being constructed. There will be closures throughout the project. Closures will be limited to two to four miles at a time with flaggers and pilot car. As a result of additional funding from NDOT, the 17-mile stretch will also be resurfaced. As such, the project is expected to finish in Spring 2015 as opposed to late 2014.

When traveling through construction zones, motorists should observe posted speed limits and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

I-15 Repaving Project Near Moapa Valley

The Nevada Department of Transportation is repaving a 26-mile stretch on I-15 in the northbound and southbound directions from Dry Lakes to the Logandale/Overton Interchange (near State Route 169). Begun in January 2014 and expected to finish Spring 2015, the project will improve the condition of the road from Milepost 69 to Milepost 95.

The project is scheduled to shut down Fall 2014, with no traffic closures, and resume for completion Spring 2015. The contractor for the $36 million project is Las Vegas Paving.

Update:

Plan ahead for delays on I-15 southbound between Glendale and Moapa for the I-15 paving project. Motorists should anticipate delays of up to one-hour on Sundays between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. Delays should also be expected during the Labor Day weekend as crews will continue to work through the holiday weekend. "Leave early or stay later so you can avoid the peak traffic volumes in the afternoon and evening. If you must travel this section on Sunday evenings or on Labor Day, please fill up with gas and carry plenty of water just in case," says Luke Rollins, NDOT Construction Supervisor. Only one lane will be open to the traveling public on I-15 southbound from August 11 until November. Northbound I-15 will not be restricted.
