Title: Portion of Cheyenne Avenue, Nearby U.S. 95 Ramps to Close for Paving Project

Story Text:

LAS VEGAS – The Nevada Department of Transportation will close Cheyenne Road from Rainbow Boulevard to Tenaya Way as well the Cheyenne on-ramps and off-ramps to U.S. 95 this weekend for a repaving project. The closures will run from 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 to 5 a.m., Monday, Oct. 15. Crews will remove a layer of pavement and then put down a new layer. This process, called a “mill and fill,” extends the life of roadways by eliminating the effects of tire ruts, asphalt movement and wear and tear that occurs over time. Motorists are encouraged to follow the detours signs to Lake Mead Boulevard and Craig Road.

NDOT strives to provide current information about construction schedules and highway and roadway restrictions and closures. Unscheduled restrictions and closures may occur and weather can impact work schedules. For the latest information on Nevada highway conditions, call 5-1-1 or log on to Nevada 5-1-1/NV Roads.
