Project Overview: Project Elements
Three design alternatives have been developed to address the challenges along this corridor. All three include the following improvements.
This video shows how the I-15 NB and SB traffic merges onto the CD road, with the opportunity to exit at Casino Center Blvd and Las Vegas Blvd, then continues on to merge with US 95 SB traffic.
This video illustrates the new decision point east of Las Vegas Blvd for US 95 NB traffic to access I-15 SB. Traffic from Las Vegas Blvd and Casino Center Blvd can still access both I-15 SB and US 95 NB.
In the proposed design, the freeway is expanded to four general purpose lanes, an HOV lane, and an auxiliary lane in each direction.
Note: Between Casino Center Blvd and 9th St, the proposed design includes three general purpose lanes instead of four, due to ramp traffic being removed from mainline and placed on the CD road.
New Landscape and Aesthetics:
The corridor will be enhanced with new landscape and aesthetics. In the future, NDOT will engage the community in deciding the look and feel of these elements.
