New Airport Flyover Opens
The flyover ramp linking the Airport Connector to the eastbound 215 Beltway opened Monday.
The new ramp is more than a half-mile long and is expected to see more than 20,000 vehicles a day. It replaces a loop ramp that was previously in place.
The new flyover ramp is the largest and most visible piece of the Phase 2 airport connector. Tuesday morning, Clark County officials said other openings will occur, including a ramp to bring traffic from the eastbound 215 Beltway and the southbound Airport Connector to Warm Springs Road as well as a ramp that will bring traffic from westbound Warm Springs Road to the westbound 215 Beltway.
The entire project is expected to be finished by the fall.
