The Northern 215 Beltway, North 5th Street to the Union Pacific Railroad crossing project is at 90% design for build-out. The project includes upgrading the signalized intersections to interchanges at Losee Road, Pecos Road, and Lamb Boulevard. We anticipate advertising for construction later this year 2017.

Westbound 215 will be restriped between Decatur and Buffalo - Estimated completion - Summer 2017.
Eastbound 215 will add a lane between Decatur and Tropicana - budgeted for 2018/20192016
In the northwest part of the valley, the Grand Montecito Bridge over the 215 is under planning.

Progress on the northern Beltway continues with the build-out of CC-215 between
Decatur Blvd and North 5th
Street. Project includes a widening, drainage improvements, and new LED energy-efficient lighting along with reconstruction of the eastbound on-ramp at the Aliante interchange and sound berms. Completed in early 2016.
In the northwest part of the valley, the
Bridge over the 215 and an eastbound
Durango Drive bridge were completed in July 2015 improving north-south mobility through this region.
Northern 215 Beltway segment between
Tenaya Way and Decatur Boulevard. The project, widened CC-215 to four-lanes, built two new highway interchanges at Jones and Decatur boulevards and a new bridge to carry Bradley Road over the freeway.
I-215, Airport Connector-Phase 1 completed widening of the 215 from I-15 to Windmill Lane. The project added one lane in both directions, auxiliary lanes and widened 4 bridges over I-215 at Paradise Road, Warm Springs Road, Robindale Road and the Airport Connector. Complete in 2014.
Construction of the
North 5th Street Interchange was completed in 2011. The project scope included roadway, bridge, drainage and utility improvements along the northern 215 Bruce Woodbury Beltway at the intersection of North 5th Street in North Las Vegas.
Completion of a build-out project on the highest point of the 215 Beltway improved it to full-freeway facility between
Summerlin Parkway. This section of the 215 was widened to six lanes with interchanges constructed at Summerlin Pky,
Far Hills Road and Lake Mead Boulevard to make a
33-mile stretch of nonstop freeway from U.S. 93/95 in Henderson to Lone Mountain Road in the northwest part of the valley.
A significant build-out project was completed in early 2009 which eliminated one of the beltway's "bottlenecks" and greatly enhanced the traffic flow in this area. The project widened the beltway to three travel lanes in each direction between I-15 and Decatur Boulevard. As part of this project, two bridge structures were also widened to accommodate the beltway's additional traffic capacity.
In the northern region of the valley, Phase 1 of the beltway's Decatur Boulevard to North 5th Street project was completed. This project featured the construction of the Aliante Parkway interchange as well as improvements to the beltway's mainline travel lanes and the future North 5th Street interchange.
Construction was completed on upgrades to the northwest segment of the beltway between Summerlin Parkway to Craig Road. The project consisted of widening the beltway one additional travel lane in each direction and constructing a grade- separated interchange at Cheyenne Avenue.
Construction was completed on upgrades to the beltway from Pecos Road to Stephanie Street. One additional travel lane and an auxiliary lane between interchanges were provided in each direction. Full-freeway improvements from Buffalo Drive to Sunset Road and from Sunset Road to Hualapai Way were also completed during the year. The community applauded these improvements as they could now travel the beltway from I-515 (US93/95) in Henderson, the southeast part of the valley to Far Hills Avenue in Summerlin, on the far west side, without being stopped by a traffic signal.
Construction was completed on Town Center Interchange, a $10 million single-point urban interchange, and the Alta Drive Bridge over the Beltway, a $2.2 million project primarily funded with contributions from the Coast Casinos. During that year, Nevada Department of Transporation also completed work on the interchange of the Beltway with the I-515 in the south east valley. Clark County Public Works assisted in design and funding efforts of this segment.
