Title: Nightly I-15 Ramp and Lane Closures

Story Text:

Las Vegas – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will implement nightly ramp and lane closures on   I-15 north and southbound between D Street and the Spaghetti Bowl starting on Sunday, Aug. 10 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night through Wednesday, Aug. 13.   

The I-15 southbound ramp to U.S. 95 and the I-15 southbound ramp to Washington Avenue will be closed on Sunday, Aug. 10 from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.  On Monday, Aug. 11 and Tuesday, Aug. 12, the I-15 northbound off ramp to D Street and the eastbound U.S. 95 ramp to northbound I-15 will close from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. each night.  Crews will be working on installing high-mast lighting, barrier rail and traffic control devices and restriping lanes.  Motorists should plan ahead, and expect delays during these nighttime closures. 

These closures are part of the project to reopen F Street under the I-15. This $13.6 million project is a collaboration between the City of Las Vegas and NDOT.
