The fact is simply this: As of January 2014, there are no further plans for upgrading CC-215 to freeway standards north of Lone Mountain to Hualapai Way until at least 2025. The rock quarry is there to stay for the near term. Lone Mountain and Ann Road will continue to be at-grade crossings. As far as an interchange at CC-215 and the 95, that start date is still up in the air. Clark County has refused for years to update the CC-215 website and contacting the Clark County Commission is even more opaque.

My take, the 215 won't be finished for decades to come.

That's unfortunate. At least the northern part of the beltway is coming along. Today I saw that the Jones underpass was finally opened. Any interchange at 95/215 will probably be very complicated and like you said, decades to come. There's no easy way of making a good interchange as far as I can tell.

The Hualapai overpass over the 215 is coming along, should be done in a couple of months. They're also starting the project to divide the east and west bound lanes at Durango.

The 95/215 interchange is...planned.

Way back when, folks thought Clark County was crazy for building a beltway (the County paid for the beltway because State didn't want to fork out $$).... thank goodness they didn't listen because the 215 has been vital for the expansion of Southern Nevada.

So true. I tried to take the 215 to the airport when it (215) first opened, what a wasted trip. I use to call the 215 the road to nowhere. Now I take it everyday to get to work. Now they can't upgrade it fast enough. They need to put dividers up north before someone has a head on crash in rush hour.

This discussion reminds me of a highway that was built around the southern and eastern side of my home town. Everyone thought they were crazy and the road was nearly deserted for about 3 years. Then people started figuring out it was the quickest way to get places and now it's very busy.

Build it and they will come.

We use 215 all the time and I'm not sure we would have ended up in SC Summerlin without it. Summerlin Pwky is a blessing also.

Sorry, I mean Fort Apache. Although they finally got metered lights on Hualapai as well.
