NDOT U.S. 95 Widening Groundbreaking Ceremony TOMORROW in Las Vegas
WHAT: A groundbreaking celebration for a $78 million widening and upgrade to a six-mile-long stretch of U.S. Highway 95 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 that will feature a wrong way driver alert sign. Other enhancements entail decorative rock, signage and lighting, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and storm drainage.
WHEN: 10:30 a.m., Thursday, February 1, 2018.
WHERE: Kyle Canyon Road and U.S. Highway 95 in northwest Las Vegas.
WHY: The impacted stretch of roadway averages 52,000 vehicles a day. However, that number is expected to more than double during the next two decades reaching 112,000 vehicles daily by 2038. The improvements will enhance mobility and capacity while improving safety.
WHO: Several elected and local dignitaries will be present, including NDOT Deputy Director Bill Hoffman, Lt. Governor Mark Hutchison, Clark County Commissioner Larry Brown, and Las Vegas City Councilwoman Michelle Fiore, among others. The public is encouraged to attend.
