Work starts Sunday on Eastern Ave. improvements

Crews will start work Sunday on a section of Eastern Avenue between St. Rose Parkway and Silverado Ranch Boulevard.

According to the city of Henderson, crews will be upgrading the road to make it safer for drivers and bicyclists.

Crews will be working between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. There will be lane restrictions nightly through the end of the year. They will be removing and replacing asphalt, bringing sidewalk ramps up to American with Disabilities Act standards and creating bicycle lanes.

The project was funded by the fuel tax increase passed by the Clark County Commission last year.

Groundbreaking Thursday for Henderson road projects

Groundbreaking Thursday for Henderson road projects

Three of the busiest roads in Henderson will soon be getting a makeover thanks to the fuel tax increase voted in by the Clark County Commission last year.

A groundbreaking is set for Thursday for improvements along Eastern Avenue, Warm Springs Road and Whitney Ranch Drive.

The $4.6 million projects will improve traffic flow by creating and restriping bicycle lanes, repaving the roads and making sidewalk ramps.

The money for the projects is coming from the county’s Fuel Revenue Indexing. It will create about 60 jobs. The projects are expected to be finished by the end of next year.

Cactus Ave. Interchange Forcing Restrictions on I-15

Work for the new Cactus Avenue interchange will force lane restrictions along I-15 this week.

The Nevada Department of Transportation announced plans to reduce the southbound freeway to one lane from 9 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, while crews install girders for the overpass. Once that work is finished, traffic will be shifted back to the western half of the freeway.

I-15 northbound will be reduced to one lane from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday. When that work is finished, the I-15 northbound traffic will be shifted to the western half of the freeway.

The Cactus Avenue interchange will eventually allow drivers to get on and off I-15 from Cactus Avenue, relieving congestion at Silverado Ranch Avenue and St. Rose Parkway. The project will also extend Cactus Avenue between Dean Martin Drive and Las Vegas Boulevard.

The project is expected to be finished by the end of 2014.
