Design Alternatives: Alternative 7
This cross section shows the mainline (primary travel lanes) and the collector-distributor (CD) road elevated above ground level with the ramps going down to ground level to meet the surface streets.
As part of Alternative 7, the ramp from U.S. 95 N to I-15 N would be modified. Traffic on U.S. 95 N would have one decision point to access both I-15 S and I-15 N. This eliminates the weaving that occurs on U.S. 95 N between the Casino Center Blvd on-ramp and the ramp to I-15 N. It also eliminates weaving on I-15 N between the on-ramp from U.S. 95 and the D Street exit. This new ramp also allows for improvements to the connection from U.S. 95 S to I-15 N using the existing ramp from U.S. 95 N to I-15 N.
This video shows a fly through animation of Alternative 7. The freeway goes over the surface streets, like we have today, but much of the freeway is built on dirt rather than a continuous bridge.
This video shows how U.S. 95 NB traffic will use a CD road and the new ramp to access I-15 NB.
This video shows how U.S. 95 NB traffic will use a CD road to access I-15 SB.
This video shows traffic from Casino Center Blvd entering the freeway with access to I-15 NB, I-15 SB, and U.S. 95 NB.
This video shows the realignment of northbound 4th Street with access to I-15 NB, I-15 SB, and U.S. 95 NB.
The new ramp from U.S. 95 N to I-15 N allows for the realignment of the ramp from U.S. 95 S to I-15 N to eliminate weaving.
