A major road project in the Northwest will pass another significant milestone this week with the project becoming "substantially complete" and the speed limit being increased from 45 to 65 miles per hour as planned on the mainline northbound and southbound 215 Beltway between Craig Road and Hualapai Way.
This change will occur during on the afternoon on Friday, Aug. 31.
Intermittent closures of travel lanes and/or the Lone Mountain Road and Ann Road off and on ramps can also be expected on this newly constructed section of the 215 Beltway as cleanup and punch list work on this project is accomplished over the next 30 to 60 days. Las Vegas Paving is the contractor on the project.
The 215 Beltway Craig Road to Hualapai Way project includes turning three miles of the Beltway into a full freeway, new floodwater detention basins and other flood control improvements, an extension of the western Beltway bicycle/pedestrian trail, new highway interchanges at Lone Mountain and Ann roads, and a bridge carrying Centennial Parkway over the highway.
