Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road

US 95 Northwest Corridor Improvements Project


Construction is underway to upgrade a six-mile-long stretch of U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads in northwest Las Vegas. Roughly 52,000 vehicles daily travel through the corridor, but that figure is expected to grow during the next two decades. The project will relieve congestion, improve efficiency and enhance safety in fast growing northwest Las Vegas, while providing capacity for future growth and development. The $78 million project is estimated for completion in fall 2019.

Project improvements include widening the highway from four to six lanes from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road, constructing Elkhorn Road carpool access ramps and building a diverging diamond interchange at Kyle Canyon Road. Other enhancements entail placing decorative rock, erecting signage and lighting, and installing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and nearly nine miles of barrier rail.

Motorists should use caution while traveling 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.
