I-15 Tropicana Project


The interchange of Interstate 15 (I-15) and Tropicana Avenue serves as one of the main gateways to the resort corridor and provides an essential connection for some of the Las Vegas Valley’s largest employment centers. The I-15 Tropicana project, sponsored by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), includes replacing the existing interchange and structures to widen and lengthen the Tropicana Avenue bridge over I-15 for increased capacity. Other improvements include:

  • Replacing the existing flyover to allow for the widening of Tropicana Ave. over I-15 and to maintain existing connectivity.
  • Adding HOV ramps to and from the south at Harmon Avenue, allowing HOV direct access to the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Modifying signalized intersection and configuration of Dean Martin Drive and Tropicana Ave.to limit access to right-in and right-out.
  • Modifying or add active traffic management (ATM) sites along I-15.
