Phase 2B (Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road) is currently in the final design phase and is anticipated to advertise to bidders in early 2017. It will:
- Widen U.S. 95 to add one general purpose land and one auxiliary lane in each direction from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road
- Add HOV direct access ramps on U.S. 95 at Elkhorn Road
- Construct sound walls in noise sensitive areas
- Perpetuate drainage, lighting, signing and ITS improvements
- Improve landscape and aesthetic features
- Relocate utilities as necessary
Phase 5 (U.S. 95 at Kyle Canyon Road) is anticipated to begin construction in early 2017. This NDOT/City of Las Vegas partnership project will consist of the following:
Phase 3 -
- Construct a new service interchange
- Landscape and aesthetic, drainage, lighting and other improvements
U.S. 95/CC 215 Northern Beltway Interchange: This project will progress when funding becomes available. Phase 3 improvements will be constructed by using proposed sub-phases. This partnership between NDOT/Clark County/City of Las Vegas will consist of the following:
Phase 3B - This phase will relocate the Kern River gas line. The gas provides service to Southwest Gas in Las Vegas and many other clients. By relocating the line further to the north, all conflicts with the new roadway improvements will be eliminated.
Phase 3C - This phase will construct the next three major system to system ramps increasing direct connectivity between US 95 and CC 215. It will build the northbound US 95 to westbound CC 215 flyover ramp, the southbound US 95 to eastbound CC 215 ramp, and westbound CC 215 to northbound US 95 ramp. In order to maintain access between W. Centennial Parkway and CC-215, a temporary connection will be constructed in the footprint of the ultimate Sky Pointe Drive interchange which will be completed in Phase 3D. This facilitates the completion of the westbound CC 215 to northbound US 95 ramp construction in this phase. All signing, lighting, and drainage improvements necessary for these improvements will be built as part of this phase.
Phase 3D - This phase will construct eastbound CC 215 mainline from the Grand Montecito structure to west of the Tenaya Way grade separation, the John Herbert Blvd. interchange, the eastbound frontage road to Sky Pointe Dr., the new Oso Blanca Road alignment, and the connection of the local access on Sky Pointe Dr. to Azure Parkway. This connection will require the City of Las Vegas to acquire a small parcel adjacent to the north leg of the Azure/Sky Pointe Drive intersection. Additionally, the eastbound and westbound frontage roads from John Herbert Blvd. interchange to Oso Blanca Road will be constructed within this phase.
Phase 3D will also construct the remainder of the ramps needed to complete the US 95/CC 215 system to system interchange including the eastbound CC 215 to northbound US 95 ramp, southbound US 95 to westbound CC 215 ramp, and complete the eastbound CC 215 to southbound US 95 ramp.
All signing, lighting, and drainage improvements necessary for these improvements will be built as part of this phase.
Once these improvements are constructed, traffic on mainline CC 215 will be shifted to the eastbound mainline, and temporary connections for the westbound on and off ramps to John Herbert will be provided until the construction of the westbound CC 215 mainline is completed in Phase 3E.
Phase 3E - All remaining features of the CC 215 will be completed in this phase. This work includes building the westbound CC 215 through the interchange. All signing, lighting, and drainage improvements necessary for these improvements will be built as part of this phase. This phase will also include landscaping and aesthetics for the entire system to system interchange.
