Summerlin Las Vegas
Summerlin Las Vegas – Though it may seem like it has been a long time coming, much of the construction around the Las Vegas Valley is finally wrapping up, or getting close to completion at any rate. The impact of the construction has in some areas been felt in the real estate market and its conclusion can only be seen as a good thing to those buying or selling Summerlin Las Vegas homes. Likewise, houses for sale in Las Vegas and condos for sale in Vegas will be seen in a fairer light now that access to them has been improved and beautified.
Residents near Henderson, east of U.S. Highway 95 are no doubt feeling mildly giddy over the thoughts of construction work being completed there. Driving in that area has in recent months been akin to finding your way out of a corn maze. When completed, Herderson’s Warm Springs Road will no longer terminate east of Boulder Highway, but will continue on to Lake Mead Parkway. The road is currently being repaved in order to better line up with the new portion. Much of the road will be closed over the weekend to allow for completion of this work. Those with Henderson NV real estate appointments scheduled for the weekend should plan for delays in this area.
Another huge project currently under way is the flyover slated to connect U.S. Highway 95 and the Summerlin Parkway. This project, expected to cost $26 million, is intended for use by high-occupancy vehicles—those carrying more than a single individual, such as carpool vehicles. The idea behind the project is to relieve some of the highway congestion. These high-occupancy lanes have been over the years the subject of some contention due to the fact they are often virtually empty while every other lane is filled to capacity and moving at a snail’s pace.
Planners hope the flyover will ease some of the congestion currently experienced by Summerlin residents driving east and encourage them to use the multi-passenger lanes along U.S. 95 by easing the merge onto those lanes. The project is expected to take about one year from beginning to completion, if all goes according t plan. The impact on homes for sale Summerlin will likely be minimal as traffic will continue more or less as normal throughout construction of the flyover, with only minor detours and lane closures at various stages of the project.
Meanwhile, work on the frontage roads along I-15 and the Blue Diamond Flyover is nearing completion. The $240 million project is expected to be finished by this July 4 and will allow greater traffic flow by shuffling eastbound traffic onto I-15 north more smoothly that the previous setup allowed.
Nearby roads currently under construction, such as the access roads along I-15 and Tropicana Avenue will open later, in phases as work there is completed. The section closest to completion, the northbound access road which joins Blue Diamond and I-215, should be opening within the next two weeks, with other sections following suit in the weeks and months following.
