U.S. Highway 95 Durango Offramp 30-Day Closure Begins Sept. 9 in Northwest Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the southbound U.S. Highway 95 Durango Drive offramp from 6 a.m., September 9, until 9 p.m., October 9, in northwest Las Vegas. The temporary closure is needed for the installation of concrete box storm drainage under the ramp as part of a $78 million, 6-mile-long widening and upgrade to U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground earlier this year. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor.
The project calls for placing 11,200 feet of concrete box storm drainage and 400 feet of open channel between the Centennial Bowl and Grand Teton Drive for the Clark County Regional Flood Control District, among other improvements. Construction is halfway done, with anticipated completion in the spring of 2019.
Motorists should follow detour signs and drive safely through the construction zone. The detour calls for traffic exiting at Centennial Center Boulevard and heading westbound to northbound Durango Drive to the intersection at Oso Blanca Road. Drivers can also exit southbound U.S. Highway 95 at Skye Canyon Park Drive to access Durango Drive. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
