Lane Shift, New Traffic Signals Coming to Decatur, 215 Intersection Thursday Night
Drivers on the Northern Clark County 215 Beltway should be extra careful overnight Thursday as there will be traffic lane shifts and new traffic signals will be turned on at the intersection with Decatur Boulevard.
Decatur Boulevard traffic will be shifted from the temporary lanes currently in use just north of that intersection to a new section of road on the new bridge there. The new traffic signals will control traffic for this new road alignment. The lane shift and traffic signal activation will impact traffic between 9 p.m. Thursday, March 14, and 6 a.m. Friday, March 15.
Also during this same time, westbound traffic on the 215 will be shifted to new lanes from around the Aviary Way Bridge to the Decatur intersection. Eastbound Beltway travel lanes will stay the same as they are now.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution in the area due to the re-routed traffic alignments.
These changes are part of a $116 million Beltway widening and improvement project that includes the construction new highway interchanges at Jones and Decatur boulevards, and a new bridge carrying Bradley Road over the Beltway. When finished, commuters will see improved traffic flow along the Northern 215 Beltway as there will be more than 7 miles of nonstop freeway from just east of U.S. 95 to Losee Road.
