The I-15/Starr Avenue Interchange adds a key link to one of the most highly-traveled corridors in the country. It will enhance local access and mobility by connecting Starr Avenue from the west side of I-15 at Dean Martin Drive to the east side of I-15 at Las Vegas Boulevard. The project will help reduce crashes and alleviate existing and projected congestion on local streets that access I-15 and I-215 via Eastern Avenue, Cactus Avenue, and St. Rose Parkway in Las Vegas, Nevada. The scope of this project is to design and construct the new interchange. The design consists of raising the I-15 freeway over Starr Avenue, while Starr Avenue remains at its existing grade.
