I-15/Tropicana Interchange Public Meeting July 27

PURPOSE OF THE MEETING: The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) invites you to attend a public information meeting for the I-15/ Tropicana Avenue Interchange Project in Las Vegas, Nevada. This public meeting serves as the opportunity to learn about the project and ask questions prior to construction, slated for late Summer 2022.

PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT: The reconstruction of the I-15/Tropicana Interchange will raise the height of the Tropicana bridge over I-15, lengthen the bridge to accommodate future widening of I-15, and expand Tropicana Avenue from three lanes to four in both directions between Las Vegas Boulevard and Valley View Boulevard. The Project will also realign Dean Martin Drive under the Tropicana roadway to improve traffic flow and build an HOV half-interchange on the south side of Harmon Avenue. Along with easing congestion, the project will improve safety for both motorists and pedestrians.

IN-PERSON PUBLIC MEETING INFORMATION: The public meeting is an open house format from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a formal presentation at 5:30 p.m. on July 27, 2022, held at the Hampton Inn, 4975 S.

Project Details 

The I-15 Tropicana Project, previously referred to as the "I-15 / Tropicana Interchange and Harmon High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Ramp and Hacienda HOV Ramp Project," is a joint effort project sponsored by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Clark County Public Works are also key partners in the process providing guidance and review of the study’s work products.

The project includes replacing the existing interchange structures to widen and lengthen the Tropicana Avenue bridge over I-15. Other improvements include the replacement of an existing flyover, addition of HOV ramps, and the separation of through traffic on Dean Martin Drive from the Tropicana Avenue intersection.
