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.

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
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.
I-15 Projects Under NDOT Permit
The City of North Las Vegas, in cooperation
with the Regional Transportation Commission of
Southern Nevada, have been
working to develop plans to improve North 5th
Street between Owens Avenue and the Northern
Beltway (CC-215), a distance of approximately seven
miles.The goal of the North 5th Street Improvements
Project is to provide an enhanced north-south
transportation corridor along North 5th Street in the
City of North Las Vegas. The $30 million bridge
is part of the City's North 5th Street Arterial
Project. The North 5th Street Bridge is
expected to be complete this summer. Funding comes
from the RTC. Target Construction is the
North Las Vegas, Nevada --
Motorists will encounter varying lane closures of
northbound and southbound Interstate 15 from
Cheyenne Avenue to Lake Mead Boulevard,
Monday through Thursday. Most of the lane
closures will be in effect from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.,
however, daytime closures will be in effect on
Monday and Tuesday. Crews will be working on
the North 5th Street Bridge over I-15.
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.
Current/Upcoming Construction - June 2014

Mount Charleston (Kyle Canyon Widening and Improvements)
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will implement lane restrictions on
Kyle Canyon Road (State Route 157) starting at 6:30 a.m.
Wednesday, Oct.2. Kyle Canyon will be reduced to one lane in a
roughly four-mile stretch encompassing the actual work zone (Mile
Markers 3.5 and 5.5). The widening and improvements project is part
of a collaborative, multi-agency effort funded and supported by
FHWA, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and
the U.S. Forest Service (USFS).
The project includes
adding approximately 17 miles of road shoulder/bike lanes and two
roundabouts to Kyle Canyon Road and an additional roundabout
to Lee Canyon Road to improve access near developed
recreation sites. During construction, travel will be reduced
to one lane of traffic and delays are expected. Motorists are
advised to plan accordingly. The initial work involves clearing
and grubbing operations. The project is expected to finish
in late 2014.
A scenic byway maintained by NDOT, Kyle
Canyon Road is an important transportation corridor for
approximately 400 residents in Mount Charleston, Rainbow
and Echo subdivisions and businesses in upper Kyle Canyon.
This road is also a designated Forest Highway, serving as a
primary access route for visitors to the Spring Mountains
National Recreation Area managed by USFS as well as the
Red Rock Conservation Area managed by the Bureau of Land
Management. Funding and support for this project comes from
several agencies and construction will be overseen by

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
