Construction on First Phase of Hollywood Boulevard Extension Project Begins This Week

Clark County and Henderson officials will break ground on May 21 on the first phase of the Hollywood Boulevard extension project. The project is designed to provide easier access on the east side of the Las Vegas Valley between residential areas in Sunrise Manor and commercial and employment areas in the city of Henderson.

“This project will be a welcome addition to residents who live in the northeast and southeast parts of the Las Vegas Valley,” said Commissioner Gibson, whose Commission District G includes Henderson. “It will improve traffic flow and provide easier access to Henderson. It also will serve as an alternative route to Boulder Highway and the I-515.”

Construction on the first phase of the $12.3 million project starts Monday at Russell Road and Wiesner Way and work will proceed south to Galleria Drive. As part of the project, Hollywood Boulevard will be expanded from two lanes to a four-lane roadway with new pavement, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, bike lanes, streetlights and a roundabout added east of the baseball fields at Silver Bowl Park. The project also includes the addition of new storm drain facilities and intersection improvements at Galleria Drive and Wiesner Way and Russell Road and Hollywood Boulevard, and a new access road to the park and parking lot improvements.

The first phase of work is expected to take 12 months to complete. The work is scheduled to occur from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Phase 2 of the project will extend Hollywood Boulevard to Vegas Valley Drive and include a bridge over the Las Vegas Wash and improved recreational access to Clark County Wetlands Park and a new trailhead that will connect to the overall trail system in the park. The cost estimate for both phases of the project is $74 million.  Construction on Phase 2 of the project is expected to begin in 2026.
