Interstate 15 Widening (Craig Road to Speedway Boulevard) Las Vegas
NDOT is making a $33.8 million 4.8-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 between Craig Road (S.R. 573) and Speedway Boulevard (Mile Markers 48.43 to 53.62) in North Las Vegas. The project will expand the highway from four to six travel lanes, plus install new lighting, signage and landscaping featuring weathered steel art sculptures. Other work calls for drainage improvements as well as widening and seismic upgrades to four overpass structures at Range Road and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor. Construction will take place during daytime and nighttime hours, with at least two lanes of traffic remaining open at all times in each direction during peak use hours. The interstate currently sees 41,600 vehicles daily; however, that figure is expected to increase 71 percent by 2033. The project began construction in August 2016 and its anticipated completion is the third quarter of 2018.
Tropicana Avenue Overlay, Las Vegas
NDOT has finished its $7.7 million mill and overlay on Tropicana Avenue between Eastern Avenue and Boulder Highway. The department will kick off the second phase of Tropicana improvements in early 2018. That work will include new curbs, sidewalks, medians and ADA accessibility.
Las Vegas Boulevard Upgrade, North Las Vegas
A $17.3 million upgrade to Las Vegas Boulevard between Carey Avenue to just north of Craig Road. The 4.6-mile-long project is underway and will include new concrete bus lanes, improve medians and place new curbs, gutters and sidewalks. The project is anticipated to be completed in January 2018.
