SR 562 SR 573

State Route 564 (SR 564) is an east–west highway in Clark County, Nevada, in the southeast portion of the Las Vegas Valley. The route travels through the city of Henderson, connecting Interstate 215 (I-215) and I-515/U.S. Route 93 (US 93)/US 95 to Lake Mead. The route was designated in 2002, replacing a portion of SR 146.

Route description[edit]

State Route 564 begins as a continuation of the Las Vegas Beltway, starting where I-215 ends at its junction with I-515 / US 93 / US 95. From there, the route travels east along Lake Mead Parkway, a major arterial roadway, towards downtown Henderson to cross Boulder Highway (SR 582). After entering the center of Henderson, SR 564 turns northeast near residential areas. The route then turns east just west of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The road enters the park, near by Lake Las Vegas. State maintenance ends, and the road continues east.[2] Around 52,500 vehicles travel on the highway near its western terminus on average each day.[3]

History[edit]

In the late 1970s, the highways in the state highway system were renumbered. SR 41 was split into two state routes. SR 146 is a started from I-15 to US 93/US 95 in Henderson. SR 147 started from US 93/US 95 to North Las Vegas.[4][5] A limited access highway alignment from US 93/US 85 started construction in 1985–86.[6][7] An interchange was built for SR 146 in 1989–90,[8][9] and the highway was completed by 1995–96. The designation I-515 was added to the highway. In the same period, SR 147's designation was removed from eastern section of Lake Mead Drive, and replaced by SR 146.[10][11] As the Las Vegas Beltway (I-215) was being constructed in the late 1990s, the last five miles (8.0 km) between Saint Rose Parkway and Interstate 515 were constructed on the SR 146 alignment. This left SR 146 in two separate segments.[12][13] The eastern segment of SR 146 was reassigned to SR 564 by 2002.[13][14] I-215 from SR 146 to SR 564's western terminus was completed in October 2005.[15][14][16]
