Clark County Public Works is continuing the upgrade to the I-215, Airport Connector. The Phase 2 project will provide the following operational improvements:

  • construction of a new direct flyover structure for all eastbound (Henderson) travel from the Airport Connector;
     
  • widening of the existing off-ramp from eastbound 215 to Warm Springs Road to provide a dedicated two-lane off-ramp to eliminate merging conflicts; the existing loop ramp from southbound Airport Connector will be limited to Warm Springs Road access.
  •  widening of the Warm Springs Rd on-ramp to westbound I-215;  
  • and widening of the southbound Airport Connector to westbound I-215 including an auxiliary lane to exit at Las Vegas Blvd.


Phase 1 was completed in January 2014
Phase 3 will be scheduled at a future date.

Airport Connector update for Spring 2017

Retaining Wall 206 - 02.JPG 

Work on the Phase 2 Airport Connector Project is continuing at a rapid pace, and motorists are advised to watch for changing traffic impacts.

The project consists of building 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 expected completion date for the entire project is late 2017.

Lane restrictions and other travel updates are posted on message boards near the airport. Information also is available on Clark County social media sites and Clark County's website via a special Public Works Department website page at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/PubWorkst. The public can also contact the department at (702) 455-6000 or via email at InTheWorks@ClarkCountyNV.gov for information.

 

Key traffic impacts at this time include:

  • George Crockett Road remains closed from Bermuda Road to where it merges onto the northbound Airport Connector.
  • Eastbound 215 has been reduced from four to three lanes at Exit 10 for approximately 1 mile to the Warm Springs Road exit.
  • Eastbound 215 Warm Springs off-ramp has been closed.
  • Westbound 215 from Windmill to Airport Connector has been reduced to three lanes.

  • Construction of the retaining walls on the south side of 215, east of the Airport Connector, are complete for the construction of the new ramp from southbound Airport Connector to Warm Springs.  Construction of the new retaining wall on westbound 215 adjacent to the Warm Springs ramp is complete and in the process of being backfilled.
  • Construction of the new retaining walls near abutment #2 of the flyover structure are complete and in the process of being backfilled. Construction of the new sound wall near abutment #2 of the flyover structure is in progress.
