Major Changes Coming to I-15 Commute

 

Get ready for another major change in the traffic flow on I-15.

As part of the I-15 Design Build South project, the I-15 southbound access road south of Tropicana Avenue will open on the morning of March 14.

One of the most critical changes is the access to CC-215 westbound from I-15 southbound. To make this connection, motorists must enter the access road just south of Tropicana Avenue.  

The access road will mean the following changes for drivers:

  • To access CC-215 westbound from I-15 southbound, drivers must enter the access road just south of Tropicana Avenue.
  • To get to Russell Road from I-15 southbound, motorists must use the access road just south of Tropicana Avenue.
  • Traffic from Tropicana Avenue and Russell Road will be able to access I-15 southbound, I-215 eastbound, and CC-215 westbound via the access road.
  • Drivers will be able to travel directly from I-15 southbound to I-215 eastbound at the current location.
  • The speed limit on the two-or-three lane access roads is 45 mph with temporary 35 mph curves.

An access road is a specialized one-way roadway very similar in appearance to a frontage road. It runs along the freeway and shifts ramp traffic that would otherwise be a part of the main freeway outwards so that merging and weaving doesn’t take place on the main lanes. An access road allows a vehicle to merge or exit the main road without weaving or interfering with the flow of faster mainline traffic. Transportation officials say access roads provide a safer drive as traffic at slower speeds is removed and weaving and merging eliminated.
