Title: Lane Closing Daily from June 10-12 for SR160 Repairs

Story Text:

LAS VEGAS - The Nevada Department of Transportation will implement daily lane restrictions on Blue Diamond Road (State Route 160) Tuesday through Thursday to repair cracks in the road. Starting at 7 a.m., each day and ending at 2:30 p.m., each day, the southbound No. 2 lane will be closed from Milepost 22-25 in Clark County. Please use caution, heed the traffic control devices (signs, cones and a cushion truck at one-mile intervals) and expect delays in the area.

Special Note: Additional Restrictions

NDOT will also implement traffic restrictions on SR160 from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11, for a storm water maintenance and concrete repair project. The right lane on northbound SR160 will be closed during that time, from the intersection of SR372/Crawford Way to 500 feet north of SR372.

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 511.
