CC-215 Beltway, Craig Road to Hualapai Way
Construction on the northwest section of the 215 Beltway kicked off in September 2015 and will be underway for 3 years. The project will bring significant improvements to this area including:
- widening and realigning of the Beltway;
- replace the at-grade traffic signals with full interchanges;
- add a bridge to take Centennial Parkway over;
- construct flood control improvements and;
- continue the regional Beltway trail.
The community is encouraged to walk up the trail on Lone Mountain to enjoy a spectacular view of the work being performed.

Design Firm: CH2M Hill, Inc
Contractor: Las Vegas Paving Corporation
Construction Management: Atkins
Project Cost - $92,431,830
Estimated Project Completion: Summer 2018
Progress Update: October 2017
- The project is about 75% complete and on schedule to finish in July 2018.
- Traffic has shifted from the old Beltway to an interim route through the intersections of Lone Mountain Road and Ann Road while construction continues on the new interchanges.
- Earthwork is proceeding along the northbound side of the new freeway as the old Beltway is being removed to make room for the shoulders and slopes.
- Installation of the stormwater collection system continues throughout the Beltway alignment, with concrete pipes, boxes, and open channels being constructed to carry flow to the two large detention basins at Lone Mountain Road.
- The intersection of Centennial Parkway and Shaumber Road is partially blocked with slower traffic routed around the installation of underground water and gas lines.
- The concrete bottom deck of the Centennial Parkway Bridge has been poured with utilities being installed through the bridge before erecting formwork for the top deck.
- New bicycle‑pedestrian trails are being paved along the Beltway and south of the project between Alexander Road and Craig Road. These trails are not yet finished and will remain closed until they are safe for public use.
- Barrier rails and traffic warning devices are in place to protect the construction workers and drivers. Please be extra cautious and slow down in the construction zones!
Progress Update: June 2017
- The project is about 65% built and on schedule for completion in July 2018.
- Concrete pavement is proceeding along the southbound side of the new freeway. The concrete crew and paving machine are working the night shift to avoid the summer heat.
- Freeway interchanges at Lone Mountain Road and Ann Road continue to take shape as the entrance and exit ramps are graded and paved with asphalt. The paving crew is also constructing bicycle‑pedestrian trails.
- Electricians are installing traffic signals and street lights at the intersections of each interchange.
- Open channels and underground pipes form a stormwater collection system tying into the two detention basins at Lone Mountain Road. In addition to drainage, the underground utilities crew is working on several waterline relocations within the Beltway alignment.
- Crews from Southwest Gas and NV Energy are working alongside the Beltway team to seamlessly integrate their utilities into the new freeway alignment and interchanges.
- The fencing crew started by erecting protective fences across the bridges and along drainage channels with miles more work ahead of them.
- Center columns and abutments for the Centennial Parkway Bridge are in place, and formwork is being erected for the concrete deck.
- Barrier rails and traffic warning devices have been set up to protect both construction workers and drivers. Please be extra cautious and slow down in the construction zones!
Progress Update: February 2017
- The project is approaching the halfway point in the schedule and is on track for completion in July 2018.
- The bridge structures for the new freeway interchanges at Lone Mountain Road and Ann Road are completed. Traffic has moved onto the bridges in order to remove the old roads and build the entrance and exit ramps.
- The foundation for the Centennial Parkway Bridge is under construction with the deck scheduled to be built over the freeway in early 2018.
- The alignment of the new freeway is graded adjacent to and lower than the current Beltway. Concrete pavement of the southbound lanes has started at the north end near Hualapai Way.
- The two former gravel pits at Lone Mountain Road have been filled with soil excavated from the freeway alignment and are being transformed into stormwater detention basins, providing additional flood control for the area. Numerous inlet and outlet drainage structures are being built within the limits of these basins.
- Work has begun on the bicycle‑pedestrian trail that will continue along the Beltway as part of this project.
- Electrical installations continue throughout the project in preparation for installing traffic signals and street lights as each interchange is completed.
- Barrier rails and traffic warning devices are in place to protect the construction workers and drivers. Please be extra cautious and slow down in the construction zones.
Progress Update: 2016
The project is proceeding on track with completion scheduled for July 2018.
Traffic control is in place to protect the construction workers and the drivers on CC-215, including barrier rails and warning signs, in the vicinity of Lone Mountain Road and Ann Road. Please be extra cautious and slow down in the construction zones.
The new freeway interchange at Lone Mountain Road is well underway with the bridge deck concrete recently poured. The community is encouraged to walk up the trail on Lone Mountain to enjoy a spectacular view of the work being performed below.
