A six-mile stretch of U.S. 95, including the turnoff to Mount Charleston, is set for an upgrade.

The Nevada Department of Transportation broke ground on a $78 million project Thursday that will widen the highway between Durango Drive and Kyle Canyon Road.

Upgrades from the Clark County Regional Flood Control District tied into the project include 11,200 feet of concrete box storm drainage and 400 feet of open channels between the Centennial Bowl and Grand Teton Drive.
