Apex to Mesquite and Moapa Valley Corridor Study

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a corridor study?

A corridor study is an opportunity to evaluate an area and address future travel needs. It typically includes comprehensive analysis of existing and future transportation, economic, environmental, and developmental needs and resources.

What is the purpose of the Apex to Mesquite and Moapa Valley Corridor Study?

The purpose of the study is to provide decision makers responsible for the various roadway corridors an action plan that identifies current and future transportation issues and a range of potential workable and cost-effective solutions. The concept was created as an early step in addressing the rapid rates of area growth and development and the resulting demand on the region’s transportation system.

Who is conducting the study?

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTCSN) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are conducting the study.

What are the study limits?

The study encompasses areas north of the Las Vegas urban area in Clark County, specifically:

  • I-15 from MP 57.00 to 123.77 (Apex to Stateline)
  • US93 from MP 52.03 to 86.58 (I-15 to Lincoln County line)
  • SR168 from MP 0.00 to 23.76 (I-15 to US93)
  • SR169 from I-15 to MP 5.82 (I-15 to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area boundary)*
    *Note: SR 169 between Logandale and Overton are subject to an existing conditions safety review only.
When will the study be completed?

The final document will be delivered in January of 2011, with milestone tasks and deliverables completed throughout the process.

What will be the end result of this effort?

The study will establish the collaboration and consensus-building necessary to plan and implement clearly defined transportation solutions to improve access, safety, and mobility while protecting quality of life. This study will provide NDOT and other southern Nevada decision makers an analysis of the socioeconomic, community, environmental, and monetary impacts of a range of improvement projects for the corridor. These projects will be prioritized and then grouped as either short- or long-term projects. Short-term improvement projects will be those with a higher priority, that meet an immediate need, and for which funding is available within the next 5 years. Implementation of the long-term projects will be tied to the pace of development in the corridor—specific growth factors and traffic counts will trigger the recommended development of each project.
