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
- 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.
- 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
Update, Oct. 11, 2013:
Nevada Department of Transportation made changes to I-15 traffic patterns
starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15 as part of the project to
reopen F Street under the freeway. On Tuesday, I-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. Crews recently finished building the northbound portion of the new F
Also, 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. The entire project is expected to be completed by the end

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

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

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.

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.

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.
