Garnet Interchange marks the junction of Interstate 15 and U.S. 93 (known as the Great Basin Highway), and is located near the northeast limit of the Las Vegas Valley. An important link for the economic development of Southern Nevada, these highways carry an increasing level of freight traffic to and from Northern Nevada and beyond. Development in the immediate vicinity of the interchange is rebounding with the improving economy. Multiple sites of industrial and manufacturing enterprises, such as the Apex Industrial Park, are being proposed, designed and constructed.
The project will provide safety, operational and capacity improvements to the I-15 /U.S. 93 interchange and U.S. 93 for approximately 5 miles. It will increase the capacity of U.S. 93 by widening from 2 lanes to 4 lanes. The improvements will include modifications to existing intersections at North Las Vegas Boulevard, Apex Great Basin Way, Grand Valley Parkway and Apex Power Parkway. In addition to these improvements, a new frontage road will be constructed to provide local access to the Apex Industrial Park. The entire 5.1 miles of frontage road will not be built as part of the initial construction. The 2.1 miles between North Las Vegas Boulevard and Grand Valley Parkway will be part of the initial construction.
Presently, design activities related to National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements and the procurement of a Design Build Contractor are all underway. The selected Design Builder will complete the design and construct these improvements.
