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.

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 contractor.
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

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
2 improvements consist of the following:

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).
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.

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.
