Title: Months-long Paving Project on Carey Avenue Starts Tuesday

Story Text:

LAS VEGAS - The City of North Las Vegas, under a permit from the Nevada Department of Transportation, will begin a Carey Avenue milling and paving project on Tuesday. This project is expected to last through mid-October. Crews will improve Carey Avenue from I-15 to Revere Street. They will work daily, Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., on this three-phase project. The first phase will include milling and paving on the north side of Carey Avenue from Losee Road to Revere Street (not including the intersection of Carey Avenue and Losee Road).

The second phase will include milling and paving on the south side of Carey Avenue. The third and final phase will include milling and paving from the intersection of Carey Avenue and Losee Road to the bridge structure over I-15. Throughout the duration of the project, Carey Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Motorists are advised to use caution, heed traffic control devices, expect delays and plan alternate routes. (Milling is the process of removing a portion of a paved area for use in creating new pavement. The process improves the quality of the pavement, enhances the driving experience and increases the longevity of a 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 511.
