The I-15/Tropicana interchange is set to be reconstructed.

Renderings of what the final product might look like show a wider Tropicana with more lanes, as well as HOV ramps at Harmon and Hacienda.

A spokesperson with the Nevada Department of Transportation says theTropicana overpass bridge isn't high enough above the interstate, and the interchange isn't wide enough for possible expansion in the future.

Project managers say the upgrade will ease up traffic, making things much easier on drivers.

NDOT officials say this is a nearly $200 million project scheduled to begin in 2020.
