Anyone who has driven around Las Vegas for any length of time knows all about the 'infamous spaghetti bowl'....the intersection of Interstate-15 and U.S. Highway 93/95. It has for many years caused traffic jams, backed up for miles on end. Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) was given funds to improve this section of the freeway (I swear we've lived here 10 years and it's been going on ever since we moved here!). All along it was promised that when the work was complete the freeway would flow like a dream. I'm here to say that I took that freeways to and from someplace a couple times this week and....the work is about complete....I flew right through the 'Spaghetti Bowl' at 7 a.m. this morning and then going home at 4 p.m. this afternoon....it was a dream, there are 4-5 lanes each way plus an HOV lane that is not quite done. This makes for 10 lanes across the freeway! Easy access to the interchanges to the freeways that cross it. I'll be driving this more often!
I've sworn for years I would not fight the traffic and congestion on that freeway but it's now time to change my mind! Check it out for yourself. My understanding is the HOV lanes will be open before Thanksgiving. If your in town over the holidays, or even if you currently live in Vegas, take a trip using the Spaghetti Bowl....you won't be sorry!
