LAS VEGAS - As part of its I-15/Cactus Avenue Interchange Project, the Nevada Department of Transportation will initiate lane reductions and traffic pattern changes on I-15 between the Silverado Ranch and St. Rose Parkway interchanges starting on July 8, 2013.
From 9 p.m. Monday, July 8 to 5 a.m. Tuesday, July 9, -15 southbound will be reduced to one lane between Silverado Ranch and St. Rose Parkway. At the completion of the work scheduled for Monday night, I-15 southbound will be shifted back to the western half of the freeway.
From 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 9 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, July 10, I-15 southbound will be reduced to two lanes between Silverado Ranch and St. Rose Parkway and I-15 northbound will be reduced to one lane in the project area.
From 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 10 to 5 a.m. Thursday, July 11, I-15 northbound will be reduced to one lane between Silverado Ranch and St. Rose Parkway. At the completion of the work scheduled for Wednesday night, I-15 northbound traffic will be shifted to the western half of the freeway.
The above lane reductions will facilitate the shifting of I-15 traffic from the eastern half of the freeway to the western half of the freeway. This shift is required to complete the construction of drainage structures across the I-15.
