Title: U.S. 95 Ramp Closures at Ann Road

Story Text:

 Las Vegas – On Oct. 31, the Ann Road on-ramp to access U.S. 95 southbound will be closed from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. due to open-grade paving.  Motorists are advised to use Craig Road to access U.S. 95 southbound and Rancho Drive.  


Depending on temperatures, the Ann Road off-ramp from U.S. 95 southbound will be closed on Nov. 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. as a result of

open-grade paving.  Drivers may use the Craig Road off-ramp to access Ann Road.  The Ann Road on-ramp to access U.S. 95 southbound will remain open.    


In order to conduct open-grade paving, temperatures must be 70 degrees or above.  Drivers should expect delays.  This work is part of U.S. 95 West Corridor’s phase one project.  The approximately $70 million, phase one project is near final completion.
