Nevada DOT is opening second longest bridge in the state

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is opening the state’s second longest bridge in Las Vegas. The 75-ft-tall 2,635-ft-long flyover will connect northbound U.S. Highway 95 with the westbound 215 Beltway in northwest Las Vegas. The 13-span concrete structure is the equivalent length of seven football fields laid end-to-end. It is part of the $73 million Centennial Bowl interchange project that broke ground in January 2019.

According to an NDOT statement, flyover ramps enable direct freeway-to-freeway connections while still maintaining highway travel speeds for greater efficiency and safety. The bridge also eliminates the current stop-and-go surface street travel currently needed when navigating the U.S. Highway 95-215 Beltway interchange, while providing added capacity for future growth.
