I-15 Nightly Lane Restrictions, Paving Upgrades August 19-29 in Clark County
CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will reduce north and southbound Interstate 15 to one lane in each direction between Cactus Avenue and St. Rose Parkway in Clark County from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. nightly, Monday through Thursday, starting the evening of August 19 and concluding the morning of August 29.
The temporary lane restrictions are needed for paving and miscellaneous work as part of the new $34 million Interstate 15 / Starr Avenue interchange, which broke ground in late 2017. The project calls for construction of a new interchange, plus the extension of Starr Avenue eastward to Las Vegas Boulevard and westbound to Dean Martin Drive. Other upgrades call for adding sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and traffic signals as well as drought tolerant landscaping, lighting, and drainage. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor. The project will finish September 18.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. 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.
