Carpool flyover bridge connecting US 95 and Summerlin Parkway opening to traffic

After a brief delay, a carpool flyover bridge connecting U.S. Highway 95 to Summerlin Parkway will finally open to traffic on Monday, Las Vegas city officials said.

The high-occupancy lane was scheduled to open by the end of January, but was delayed because of “unforeseen conflicts” with underground utilities and the installation of a storm drain, city spokeswoman Margaret Kurtz said.

The work is part of a larger project to widen the auxiliary lane on westbound Summerlin Parkway, between Durango Drive and Rampart Boulevard. Plans also call for a pedestrian trail linking Rampart and Durango, north of the parkway.

The entire $3 million project is scheduled to finish by July, Kurtz said.
