NV/AZ Border Sign Installation, I-11 Traffic Restrictions Start Nov. 18 in Boulder City
BOULDER CITY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is installing a new $396,090 “Welcome to Nevada” monument sign along northbound Interstate 11 at the Arizona border. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor.
Construction entails closing the right travel lane along Interstate 11 for a quarter-mile northbound from U.S. Highway 93, starting November 18 and continuing through January 5, 2020. Work will occur from 5 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday. However, construction will be suspended November 22 through December 2 for the holidays.
The nearly 20-foot-tall by 8-foot-wide plinth is constructed from stylish yet rugged materials such as stainless steel and concrete. The colorful design features an extruded state of Nevada silhouette with bold lettering for a distinctive gateway entry that remains lit at night via a photovoltaic panel.
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.
