This corridor improvement project included preliminary and final design for transit improvements on Flamingo Road from Grand Canyon Drive to Jimmy Durante Boulevard, a length of approximately 15 miles. The project also included the conversion of approximately 8 miles of existing shoulder lane to a shared transit/bike lane. Segments of Flamingo Road are under the jurisdiction of the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and Clark County Public Works (CCPW). Project improvements consisted of mill/overlay, concrete bus pads, bus shelters with concrete platform, channelization worm islands at over 40 locations, pedestrian islands and flashers systems, ADA upgrades, traffic signal modifications at 40 intersections, street light relocations, and median aesthetic treatments. Services included an extensive traffic study, alternative development, and multi-agency coordination with RTC, NDOT, and CCPW. The traffic study included the development of DHVs using RTC projections and principles of NCHRP 255, analyses of existing and future conditions including LOS/capacity and turn-lane storage, signal and all-way stop evaluations, and detailed access management review for restrictive channelization. Crossing improvements were recommended based on guidelines of NCHRP Report 562 – Improving Pedestrian Safety at unsignalized Crossings and other technical publications. GCW conducted an extensive public outreach program consisted of public information meetings and one-on-one meetings with project stakeholders and adjacent property owners/tenants. Contract drawings and technical specifications were prepared along with cost estimates at 30%, 60%, 90%, and 100% design levels. The project utilized the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) project delivery method.
