Ramps Linking Eastbound 215, Airport Connector Closing Overnight Next Week

           The ramps connecting eastbound 215 and the Airport Connector will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily from Monday night, May 29, to Friday morning, June 2, due to ongoing construction in the area.

 

            The Exit 10 ramp from eastbound 215 to the Airport Connector, and the ramp from the Airport Connector to eastbound 215 (towards Henderson) will be closed during these hours.

 

            Drivers headed to McCarran International Airport from eastbound 215 are encouraged to follow a detour to Windmill Lane and westbound 215 to get to the airport.

 

            Drivers leaving the airport and headed towards Henderson are encouraged to follow a detour to Las Vegas Boulevard to access eastbound 215.

           

            The closures are necessary as crews work on the Phase 2 – Airport Connector Project, which includes construction of a new flyover ramp and bridge connecting southbound Airport Connector to eastbound 215, widening the off-ramp from eastbound 215 to Warm Springs Road and construction of a new bridge for that off-ramp, and the widening of a bridge carrying westbound 215 traffic over the Airport Connector. The entire project is expected to be finished in the fall.

 

            The Public Works Department has set up a page on Clark County's website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/PubWorks to provide details about the project. The public can also contact the department at (702) 455-6000 or via email at InTheWorks@ClarkCountyNV.gov for information. Las Vegas Paving is the contractor for this project, which is being funded in part through Fuel Revenue Indexing. Fuel Revenue Indexing takes a portion of what motorists pay at the pump to fund critical transportation projects. For the average motorist, the cost is about a dime a day to generate up to $700 million to fund 220 projects and create approximately 9,000 jobs. For more information, go to www.rtcsnv.com/fri. To date, Fuel Revenue Indexing has made it possible for local governments to award 138 contracts with a combined value of more than $328 million and creating 4,231 jobs.
