I-15 cactus interchange project
The I-15 Cactus Interchange
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
will cost an estimated $62 million. Construction began on April 1, 2013, and is
scheduled to last approximately 18 months.
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. Through the end of 2013, 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.
