State Route 160

SR160 Phase 1 Widening Project. A $16.5 million, 5-mile widening project between Mile Markers 11 and 16 broke ground in February 2016. It expands the highway from two to four travel lanes while flattening the side slopes for a partially divided asphalt highway that will be significantly smoother, allowing motorists to safely pass slower vehicles. The project is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2017. The project construction will be designed to safely accommodate road users with minimal delays. Starting in February 2016, the contractor will be working on the north side of the road from SR 159 to about Mile Post 12. Traffic will then be moved to the new pavement on the north side of the road while work is performed on the south side of the road. Work will proceed on the north half of the highway from Mile Post 12 to 16.

 SR160 Phase 2 Widening Project. The project is anticipated to begin construction in late 2017. Between Mile Post 16 and about Mile Post 22, the road will be widened to a four-lane highway. 

Interstate 11

Phase 1 of Interstate 11 consists of a continuous four-lane, controlled-access, divided freeway and highway passing south of the developed area of Boulder City.
