U.S. Highway 95 Lane Reductions Start January 11 in Northwest Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will reduce U.S. Highway 95 to one lane in both directions for a 3-mile stretch between Skye Canyon Park Drive and Paiute Drive in northwest Las Vegas from 5 a.m., January 11, until July 12, 2018. The 24/7 lane restrictions are needed for construction of new Kyle Canyon interchange bridge structures as part of a $65 million six-mile-long U.S. Highway 95 upgrade between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads in northwest Las Vegas.
The project calls for expanding the highway from four to six lanes from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road, constructing Elkhorn Road carpool access ramps and building a diverging diamond interchange at Kyle Canyon Road. Other enhancements entail placing decorative rock, erecting signage and lighting, and installing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and nearly nine miles of barrier rail. Additionally, the project will place 11,200 feet of concrete box storm drainage and 400 feet of open channel between the Centennial Bowl and Grand Teton Drive for the Clark County Regional Flood Control District. Construction is scheduled to finish in the fall of 2019.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible. NDOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
