NDOT breaks ground on $38M interchange

LAS VEGAS - The Nevada Department of Transportation broke ground Thursday on a new interchange to help handle the growth on the south end of I-15.

The $34 million interchange will be at Starr Avenue between Cactus and St Rose Parkway. Unlike most of the groundbreakings that Clark Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak has been part of -- with regular shovels -- this one he got behind an actual excavator.

This will be the first time in Nevada an interchange will have a wrong-way driver alert safety feature.

Nevada Lt. Gov. Mark Hutchison talked about how the interchange is helpful for growth, making it easier for people to get in and out of the residential and commercial areas already there and those in the future.

The I-15 Starr Avenue interchange will also be a little different in that it will go under the freeway instead of over it. The project is expected to be ready for drivers by June of 2019
