Construction Under Way to Expand CC-215 Southern Beltway from I-15 to Jones Blvd.
Work is under way on a major project to widen the Clark County 215 Bruce Woodbury Beltway between Interstate 15 and Jones Boulevard in the Southern Las Vegas Valley.
Starting Monday, Aug. 7, Valley View Boulevard from West Martin Avenue to West Maule Avenue in the southwest valley will be closed in both directions for about 6 months for work on the offramp for westbound CC-215 at Decatur. The bridge over Valley View Boulevard is being extended to the north to allow for realignment and widening of the Decatur offramp.
The bridge work and new offramp are part of an $84.6 million project that is estimated to be complete in spring 2025. Work is expected to occur at various times of the day throughout the project. Work requiring lane restrictions on CC-215 is expected to occur between 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to limit impacts to the traveling public.
As part of the project, reconstruction of the CC-215 Beltway will occur between Jones Boulevard and I-15 adding a lane in both directions for a total of five lanes in each direction. The new westbound lane will extend to Jones Boulevard. The new eastbound lane will extend from Decatur to the I-15. Additional improvements include pavement repairs and resurfacing, drainage facilities, and new signage, and lighting. The project also includes improvements to the interchange at CC-215 and Las Vegas Boulevard that consists of work on Las Vegas Boulevard, Hidden Well Road, George Crockett Road and the Las Vegas Boulevard offramp from I-15 to CC-215 eastbound and the CC-215 eastbound on-ramp from Las Vegas Boulevard. Lane restrictions will be announced as work on this portion of the project begins. Work on Las Vegas Boulevard is expected to last about 90 days as part of the overall project. The project will relieve congestion for motorists merging from the I-15 to the westbound CC-215 and exiting the CC-215 eastbound to I-15.
