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.
On Sunday, June 2, on the
first phase of multiphase project began. Project work hours are
nightly from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday night through Friday morning.
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 3. Expected to last until spring 2014, this phase includes moving
southbound freeway traffic over to the northbound side of the freeway so that
crews can construct the southbound portion of the F Street Bridge. A
temporary ramp to accommodate southbound I-15-to-I-515 traffic will also be
built. Two lanes on I-15 will be maintained in each direction throughout
the project area. The F Street Reopening project contains seven phases.
Though timelines for the remaining phases haven't been determined yet,
the project is scheduled for completion in late 2014. Additional
phases will encompass the following:
- Phase 4: Building the S/B I-15- to-I-515
structure, D Street on-ramp over F Street and a storm drain
- Phase 5: Replacing barrier rail
between southbound I-15/I-515 lanes.
6: Improving pavement, curbs, gutters and sidewalks on F
- Phase 7: Constructing F Street under
I-15 and a portion of F-D Connector Roadway.
Current Project Status:
The Nevada Department of Transportation made changes to I-15 traffic
patterns starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15: Northbound and southbound
lanes were switched to the northbound side of the freeway, with two lanes
available in each direction.This configuration will last until spring 2014
and will allow crews to construct the southbound portion of the F Street
Bridge. On Wednesday, Oct. 16, the D Street/Washington on-ramp to southbound
I-15 closed; it will remain closed until summer 2014. The alternate route to
I-15 will be via the Martin Luther King Boulevard on-ramp. Two lanes on I-15
will be maintained in each direction throughout the project area.
UPDATE: F Street Closures Begin Jan. 2, 2014
Beginning Jan. 2, 2014, construction work will begin on the section of F
Street north of I-15. As a result, 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.
Then, in late-January, road and
utility work is scheduled to begin on F Street from I-15 to Washington. At
that time, all through traffic on F Street will be restricted, including
entrances from Washington, Morgan, McWilliams and alleys. Again, access will
remain available to homeowners.
Once asphalt removal is complete, ramps
will be installed so homeowners can drive through the worksite to enter
their driveways. This 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.
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 information.

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
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

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.

Mount Charleston (Kyle Canyon Widening and Improvements)
The 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
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.
scenic byway maintained by NDOT, Kyle Canyon Road is an important
transportation corridor for approximately 400 residents in Mount

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 the FHWA.

I-15 Repaving Project Near Moapa
The Nevada Department of Transportation is repaving a
26-mile stretch on I-15 in the northbound and southbound directions from Dry
Lakes to the Logandale/Overton Interchange (near State Route 169). Begun in
January 2014 and expected to finish in early 2015, the project will improve the
condition of the road from Milepost 69 to Milepost 95. Traffic will be reduced
to one lane in each direction for the majority of the project. Project work
hours are Monday through Friday 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding major holidays that
may affect traffic.
As the project progresses, traffic will be switched
from one side of the freeway - with a travel lane in each direction - while the
other side is being worked on. When that side is finished, traffic will be
switched to the other side of the freeway - with a travel lane in each direction
- to complete that work. In the late summer or early fall, there will one or two
24-hour marathon closures. The contractor for the $36 million project is Las
