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 tie-in.
  • Phase 5: Replacing barrier rail between southbound I-15/I-515 lanes.
  • Phase 6: Improving pavement, curbs, gutters and sidewalks on F Street.
  • 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.

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 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 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

US 95 NW for Projects Page

This 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.


U.S. 95 Northwest Corridor Improvements Project

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 (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 the FHWA.

UPDATE - APRIL 18, 2014

Repaving Marks Next Phase on Kyle Canyon Widening and Improvements Project

LAS VEGAS - FHWA will implement lane restrictions on Kyle Canyon Road starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday, April 9, 2014. For the next two to three weeks, crews will be repaving Kyle Canyon Road from Milepost 15 to Milepost 21. During this time, the public will be driving on a milled surface for two to three days during the week; all milled surfaces will be paved before the weekend.

Once this project in complete, crews will then remove 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 equipment.

I-15 Repaving Project Near Moapa Valley

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 Vegas Paving.
