Title: Closures on U.S. 95 Saturday Night for Graffiti Abatement

Story Text:

LAS VEGAS - The Nevada Department of Transportation will implement overnight lane closures on U.S. 95 for a graffiti abatement project. Starting at 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, and continuing until 8 a.m., Sunday, Jan. 26, there will be right lane closures on  U.S. 95 northbound from Rancho (southern exit) to Summerlin Parkway to install graffiti guards. As work starts, lanes will be closed from Rancho (southern exit) to Jones; as the project progresses, there will be right-lane closures from Jones to Summerlin Parkway. Please note: When the right lanes are closed at Jones, the U.S. 95 northbound on ramp from Jones will also be closed. Expect traffic delays and consider alternate routes.
