Q&D Construction, along with the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), is reconstructing a bridge replacement project north of Reno that's designed to provide motorists with an improved overall driving experience. Work on the $10.7 million endeavor on the Parr Bridge began in mid-June 2020.
Workers on the $99 million I-15/215 Interchange project in north Las Vegas are seeing something of a silver lining in the pandemic that has shut down the city.
"Traffic mitigation is an issue," said Nevada DOT spokesman Tony Illia. "But right now, with COVID-19, we've seen traffic drop off substantially — up to 76 percent in some places depending on the day.
Industry outsiders might think that a man breaking up a concrete pavement with a sledgehammer is destroying public property; however, if industry insiders were to see this act or a machine rhythmically crashing huge hammers onto a roadway, they would instantly recognize this process as rubblization.
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) reports that construction on the state's second longest bridge has reached its midway completion point. The 2,635-ft.-long flyover will connect northbound U.S. Highway 95 to the westbound 215 Beltway in northwest Las Vegas.
Nevada's growing population and an increase in travel made the widening project of State Route 160 necessary in Southern Nevada.
The Nevada Department of Transportation awarded a $58.6 million contract to Aggregate Industries SWR (AISWR) to widen and upgrade a 28-mi.
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) permanently closed the northbound U.S. Highway 95 to westbound 215 Beltway loop ramp Feb. 5, in northwest Las Vegas. It's being demolished and rebuilt as a direct flyover ramp as part of the $73 million next phase of the Centennial Bowl, which broke ground in January.
The Nevada Department of Transportation hosted a public hearing on Dec. 12 to gather public feedback on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement outlining proposed improvements to the Reno-Sparks Spaghetti Bowl and metro interstates.
As part of fast-tracking future major improvements to the Spaghetti Bowl and neighboring interstates, NDOT hosted a series of public meetings in 2017 to gather public input on conceptual alternatives for enhancing traffic safety and mobility.
The third and final phase of the largest and most expensive public works project undertaken in Nevada's 152-year history is wrapping up. When finished, Project Neon will widen 3.7 mi. of Interstate 15 in downtown Las Vegas. It's currently the busiest stretch of highway in Nevada, traveled by 300,000 vehicles daily, and expected to double by 2035.
Construction crews in Nevada are making steady progress as they widen and upgrade a 6-mi.-long stretch of U.S. Highway 95 in Las Vegas. In February, officials broke ground on the $78 million project, which will improve reliability, connectivity and mobility.
While the $3 million, 2-mile-long beautification project now underway along Interstate 515, also known as U.S. Highway 95, near Henderson, Nev., may seem small in comparison to what the Nevada Department of Transportation typically undertakes – look no further than price tag for the completion in Late August for the "first phase" of Interstate 11 – the I-515 project illustrates a key aspect of the agency's highway construction philosophy, said Tony Illia, a public information officer with the Nevada DOT.
The Nevada Department of Transportation has announced that approximately $32 million in additional federal highway spending authority has been made available for Nevada road projects through redistribution of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) fiscal year-end funds.
