While work continues on the Centennial Bowl project Phase 3A—NB US 95 to EB CC 215 (open); WB CC 215 to SB US 95 flyover and SB collector-distributer still in progress—NDOT is apparently scoping work on another ramp at the interchange.

Plans begin for next phase of Centennial Bowl project in northwest Las Vegas
Las Vegas Review Journal, 7/11/16

--- Quote ---The Nevada Transportation Department’s board on Monday agreed to start looking for a consultant who willsolicit bids from construction companies to design and build a ramp connecting southbound U.S. Highway 95 to the eastbound 215 Beltway.

The article makes it sound like this ramp construction will be contingent upon voters extending Clark County's Fuel Revenue Indexing program.

This is one of two movements that is not currently accommodated in some fashion directly at the interchange (the other being US 95 SB to CC 215 WB). This is one of several ramps that was proposed for construction in Phase 3C.

Updates:

The WB 215 to SB 95 flyover ramp is expected to open on July 4th. Also, due to the FRI funding initiative being retained by voters in November 2016, the next phase of the Centennial Bowl construction (several new direct connection ramps) will continue the design phase and move to construction next year (sooner than originally anticipated).

--- Quote ---The Nevada Department of Transportation’s board of directors on Monday approved a $1.5 million boost to an existing engineering contract with HDR to complete design checks for three additional ramps connecting the 215 Beltway and U.S. Highway 95.

NDOT is currently designing the next phase of the Centennial Bowl, with construction expected to start by spring 2018.

The $55 million project calls for construction of a flyover ramp carrying vehicles from northbound U.S. 95 to the westbound Beltway, a ramp connecting southbound U.S. 95 to the eastbound Beltway and a third ramp linking the westbound Beltway to northbound U.S. 95, spokesman Tony Illia said.

--- Quote ---In the near term, NDOT officials are expected to complete the $47 million current phase of the Centennial Bowl on July 4 with the opening of a 60-foot-tall, 2,500-foot-long flyover bridge linking the westbound Beltway to southbound U.S. 95.

Construction of the Centennial Bowl began in summer 2015, and the initial phase was completed last year with the opening of a ramp linking northbound U.S. 95 to the eastbound Beltway.

Looks like a slight delay from the previous update. The WB-to-SB flyover will open July 12th.

NDOT officials plan to hold a dedication ceremony before drivers are allowed to access a 60-foot-tall, 2,500-foot-long flyover bridge linking the westbound 215 Beltway to southbound U.S. Highway 95, NDOT Deputy Director William Hoffman said during the agency’s board meeting.

NDOT is also doubling down on starting the next phase of this interchange in 2018...


--- Quote ---Next year, construction resumes with a $55 million project that calls for construction of a flyover ramp carrying vehicles from northbound U.S. 95 to the westbound Beltway, a ramp connecting southbound U.S. 95 to the eastbound Beltway and a third ramp linking the westbound Beltway to northbound U.S. 95, NDOT spokesman Tony Illia said.

Those three ramps are expected to be completed by 2020.

The article includes pictures, and a video of a county vehicle driving all the way along the about-to-be-opened ramp.

compdude787:
Are they going to build a ramp from eastbound CC 215 to NB US 95? Seems like that's quite a missing movement, especially for traffic bypassing Las Vegas to head to Reno.
