Nevada DOT Starts $26M Nellis Boulevard Upgrade Project in Clark County

CLARK COUNTY, NV — The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) begins work on a $26-million, 10-mile upgrade of Nellis Boulevard between Tropicana Avenue and Craig Road in Clark County. Las Vegas Paving Corp. is the general contractor. Initial construction starts at Tropicana Avenue. At least two lanes will remain open in each direction during construction, except during the overnight hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., when the work zone will be squeezed down to one lane in each direction.

These enhancements will rejuvenate a heavily traveled urban arterial with three school zones, creating a safer and more pedestrian friendly corridor. This project will also generate 335 high-paying locally sourced direct, indirect, and induced jobs.

The Sahara Avenue, Charleston Boulevard, and Bonanza Road intersections will undergo full-depth asphalt repaving with streetlight replacements and signage improvements. Other work includes adding two push-button activated pedestrian mid-block crossings with overhead rapid flashing beacons at Newton Avenue and another just north of Cheyenne Avenue. New handicap accessible ramps, sidewalks, and driveways are being installed while Intelligent Transportation System facilities are added and concrete medians are reprofiled.

The project will remove and replace the existing deteriorating pavement, with 103,000 tons of new blacktop or enough asphalt to pave over 9,000 average-sized driveways. This stretch of roadway averages 34,340 vehicles daily. The project is anticipated to wrap up in mid-2022.

Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible.
