I-11 Shieldinterstate-11 Phase 2 

Description

Phase 2 is being administered by the RTC as a single Design-Build contract.  The RTC and NDOT have been working together since the passage of AB413 to procure a design-builder to bring the design to a 100% level as well as constructing the entire Phase 2 and has awarded the contract to Las Vegas Paving.  The Design-Build team is currently in the early phases of design with construction anticipated to begin in late April 2015.  Upon project completion, the entire  Phase 2 will be relinquished to NDOT in perpetuity for ownership and maintenance responsibilities.  Phase 2 right-of-way requirements have been established and will require property to be acquired from the city of Boulder City, the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) and the National park Service for right-of-way within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Phase 2, NDOT EA 73320, will be the portion of the project that extends from Silverline Road to the western limits of the overall project. The west end of Phase 2 will tie into the Nevada interchange which was completed in October of 2010 as part of the FHWA Hoover Dam Bypass Project. Phase 2 will run around the south and east sides of Boulder City. As the alignment moves northeast towards Lake Mead, it will crest the Eldorado Mountains and then descend down through the Lake Mead National Recreation Area to the Nevada interchange. The overall Phase 2 project length is approximately 12.5 miles.
