Cactus Avenue Interchange to open Friday

LAS VEGAS - A long-anticipated road project is finishing earlier than expected. The Nevada Department of Transportation is opening the Cactus Avenue Interchange over I-15 on Friday.

The Cactus Avenue interchange allows drivers to access I-15 from Cactus Avenue. The goal is to relieve congestion along Silverado Ranch Avenue at St. Rose Parkway.

The interchange also extends Cactus Avenue between Dean Martin Drive and Las Vegas Boulevard.

The $52 million project began in April 2013. It was scheduled to open in October. NDOT says crews will make final adjustments to the project during the next few weeks, despite Friday's opening.
