The project was to involve improvements to the I-515 Corridor between the southern terminus of the present I-515 Freeway in the City of Henderson (MP56) and the northern terminus of I-515 in the City of Las Vegas (MP76). The purpose of the project was to make improvements to the corridor necessary to provide for existing and projected traffic demand resulting from the growth of interstate traffic and local commuter traffic in the southeast Las Vegas Valley. Because of the economic downturn, FHWA and NDOT are reassessing the needs and timing for improvements to the I-515 Corridor and have indefinitely postponed any major improvements to the corridor.
Issued on June 14, 2012.
Division Administrator, Carson City, Nevada.
