NDOT $2.4M Boulder Highway Bridge Upgrade Starts March 18 in Henderson
HENDERSON, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) begins a $2.45 million bridge reconstruction of the Boulder Highway (State Route 582) exit over northbound Interstate 11 on March 18 in Henderson. Fisher Sand & Gravel is the general contractor. Crews will be working from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, through August 18.
As a result, the northbound I-11 offramp to Boulder Highway will be closed during construction, with traffic being rerouted onto College Drive. (Wagonwheel Drive is another suggested alternative route). Meanwhile, motorists can also expect lane restrictions in both directions along Boulder Highway between Horizon Drive and Wagonwheel Drive, with a reduced speed limit of 35 miles per hour through the construction work zone. Additionally, there will be no left turn from Calle Bonita onto southbound Boulder Highway.
The two-lane 204-foot long bridge is being demolished and rebuilt with a new concrete cast-in-place box girder structure due to damage suffered from soil settling.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
