The Nevada Department of Transportation is undertaking a $17.3 million upgrade of Las Vegas Boulevard (State Route 604) from Carey Avenue to just north of Craig Road.

The 4.6-mile-long project will create concrete bus lanes, improve median islands and place new curb, gutter and sidewalks. Plans also call for milling and overlaying the existing asphalt roadway between Carey Avenue and Nellis Boulevard.

Construction entails placing 43,400 tons of asphalt, or the equivalent of paving 8,680 driveways, and moving enough dirt to fill almost 600 average sized swimming pools.

Work will occur daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, resulting in a single north and southbound lane restriction. Work starts Sunday with anticipated completion in January 2018.

Aggregate Industries is the general contractor, with AECOM as project manager.

Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible. NDOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
