The transportation improvements are in connection with the planned $1 billion Faraday Future car manufacturing facility in the City of North Las Vegas. The improvements include safety and capacity improvements to the I-15/US 93 interchange, widening of US 93 for five miles and related intersection improvements.
Under its contract, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff will prepare environmental documentation and preliminary design for the interchange improvements. Environmental documentation will involve field studies to identify any significant cultural and biological resources in the project area. Concurrent to the preliminary design effort, the firm will assist the Department in a design-build procurement to deliver the project.
Construction on the project is slated to begin in June 2017.
