LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A Summerlin road project originally estimated to cost $110 million and scheduled to begin last year is set to start in the second half of 2024.
The Clark County 215 Beltway and Summerlin Parkway project, expected to get underway in the second half of this year, includes “a reconfiguration of interchange ramps and the construction of new ramps, four new roadway bridges, widening the existing Summerlin Parkway bridge, three new trail bridges, retaining walls, storm drainage facilities, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, street lighting, traffic signals modifications, utility modifications and relocations, traffic control devices/signage, and pavement markings,” according to Erik Pappa, Clark County Director of Communications.
He added that construction on the project is estimated to take about two years, and the price tag may increase along with the timeframe.
“The estimate last year was $110 million, but due to inflationary pressures and design enhancements that figure will increase,” he observed.
This project will construct the remaining direct ramps connecting the Clark County 215 Beltway to Summerlin Parkway as well as braided ramps between Far Hills Avenue and Summerlin Parkway, which will “greatly improve mobility through the area,” according to Pappa. He also addressed the delays in getting the project started.
“We have been working through the project design with some additional improvements as well as coordination with utilities to allow for concurrent construction and coordination with adjacent land development,” Pappa explained. “Additionally, the entity responsible for maintaining Summerlin Parkway changed from the city of Las Vegas to NDOT, so we are working through permitting with a new entity.”
