The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is nearing completion on an $8.9 million, 11-mi.-long widening and upgrade of U.S. Highway 93, from north of Interstate 15 to just south of Glendale–Moapa Road in Clark County.

Improvements entail roadway rehabilitation, including a mill and pave overlay, as well as shoulder widening and slope flattening that creates safe vehicle turnout areas. The project also adds a northbound truck climbing lane, enabling motorists to safely pass slower moving vehicles without temporary swinging into oncoming traffic. Other upgrades consist of drainage pipe and tortoise fencing, salvaging 800 native plants and hydroseeding 21 acres of desert landscape. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor.

“This project improves safety, mobility and reliability throughout the region, better serving rural southern Nevada,” said Rudy Malfabon, NDOT director.

Crews will place enough blacktop to pave 6,600 driveways and move enough dirt to fill more than 200 average-sized swimming pools. The project, which broke ground in December, is scheduled to finish in September.
