PRIMM, NV (KXNT) - If you live near the border of California and Nevada, get ready for some road and highway upgrades.

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is undertaking a $1.34 million, quarter-mile-long upgrade of Primm Boulevard at Interstate 15 in Primm, Nevada, roughly 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas. The stretch of roadway averages 16,000 vehicles daily, including heavy truck traffic. However, it has been 20 years since it was last paved.

The project, near the California border, calls for new roadbed and asphalt paving plus drainage enhancements and handicap accessible curb and ramp improvements. Additionally, roadway medians and striping will be realigned to better accommodate tractor-trailers. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor, with Horrocks Engineers as lead designer.

Construction will place enough blacktop to pave 270 driveways and move enough dirt to fill over 60 swimming pools. Work will begin in mid-September, with anticipated completion by year’s end. Flaggers will safely guide vehicles through the construction work zone, resulting in minor traffic delays.

Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures, and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
