F Street Connection Project (underneath I-15)
This multimillion-dollar project will reopen F Street
underneath I-15 near downtown Las Vegas. Since 2010, the City of Las Vegas and
NDOT have been working with elected officials and community leaders on a
reopening plan. This effort has involved citizen input on the design,
aesthetics and more. Construction will take approximately 20
months and finish in late 2014.
The F Street Connection
Project will impact the traveling public on I-15 between Washington Avenue
and U.S. 95. The project is currently in Phase 4; building the S/B
I-15- to-I-515 structure, D Street on-ramp over F Street and a
storm drain tie-in Additional phases will encompass the
Phase 5: Replacing
barrier rail between southbound I-15/I-515 lanes.
Phase 6: Improving pavement, curbs,
gutters and sidewalks on F Street.
7: Constructing F Street under I-15 and a portion of
F-D Connector Roadway.
Current Project Status:
Street/Washington on-ramp to southbound I-15 will remain closed until
August 2014. The alternate route to I-15 will be via the Martin
Luther King Boulevard on-ramp.
Construction began in the F Street
neighborhood north of I-15 on Jan. 2, 4014. Throughout the surface streets
portion of the project, there will be surface-street closures in the
surrounding neighborhood. First, storm drain and sewer utilities will
be enhanced on McWilliams from F Street to E Street. McWilliams will
be closed from F Street to E Street, with the northern portion of
McWilliams remaining accessible to homeowners.
utility work also began in January on F Street from I-15 to Washington.
All through traffic on F Street is restricted, including entrances
from Washington, Morgan, McWilliams and alleys. Access remains
available to homeowners.
Ramps have been installed so homeowners
can drive through the worksite to enter their driveways.
Construction will take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; no work will
take place outside of these times unless a notification to the
neighborhood is provided at least 48 hours in advance. Construction
equipment and haul trucks will use G Street, H Street and E Street to
enter and exit the work area. Please call (702) 385-6509 for more

I-15 Cactus Avenue Interchange Project
Construction on the I-15 Cactus Interchange
Project is underway. This project will reduce congestion on I-15 in
the rapidly growing sectors of the Las Vegas Valley and
provide a connection for regional traffic for motorists
traveling within Clark County, the city of Las Vegas and
the city of Henderson. In addition, the project will
provide an alternative route to the rapidly-expanding
southwestern sector of the Las Vegas Valley. The total
project cost is estimated between $62 million. Construction
began on April 1, 2013, and is expected to be completed
in Fall 2014.
As the project
progresses, motorists can expect lane closures in and
around the project area. Updates will be posted to this
page and, in some cases, distributed via NDOT's social
media mechanisms. Motorists can expect lane
reductions and traffic shifts on I-15 between Silverado
Ranch and St. Rose Parkway as part of the I-15
interchange project at Cactus Avenue.

U.S. 95 Northwest Corridor Improvements
multi-phase, multi-year project will improve U.S. 95 from Washington Avenue to
Kyle Canyon Road in northwestern Las Vegas by adding lanes, constructing
interchanges at Horse Drive and Kyle Canyon Road and creating a
system-to-system interchange between U.S. 95 and CC 215, along with other
improvements, including aesthetics.
Phase 1, which stretches
from Washington Avenue to Ann Road, is complete. Phase 4, which included a
new interchange at Horse Drive and U.S. 95, was complete in 2011. Phases 2
and 3 are currently in the final design phases and will proceed when
funding becomes available. Phase 5 is scheduled to begin construction in
2018 or later, pending funding. Phases 2 and 5 are in partnership with
the City of Las Vegas; Phase 3 is a partnership between NDOT, the
City of Las Vegas and Clark County.
The project is currently in
Phase 2. The Phase 2 improvements have been divided into two separate contracts
for construction. Phase 2A will widen U.S. 95 from Ann Road to Durango Drive
and Phase 2B will widen U.S. 95 from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road.

Repaving Marks Next Phase on Kyle Canyon
Widening and Improvements Project: Crews are removing pavement from
Milepost 4 to Milepost 5 in order to work on new roundabouts. Once the
pavement is removed, the public will be riding on a surface comprised of
dirt and compacted millings for two to three months while the roundabouts
are being constructed. There will be closures throughout the project.
Closures will be limited to two to four miles at a time with flaggers and
pilot car. As a result of additional funding from NDOT, the 17-mile stretch
will also be resurfaced. As such, the project is expected to finish in Spring
2015 as opposed to late 2014.
When traveling through
construction zones, motorists should observe posted
speed limits and watch for construction personnel and
