Washington Ave. Paving Upgrades, Lane Closures May 18-June 30 in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is undertaking a $1.12 million, half-mile-long upgrade of Washington Avenue (State Route 578) between A Street and Las Vegas Boulevard in downtown Las Vegas. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor. The project calls for milling and placing new asphalt pavement as well as reconstructing handicap ramps. The right travel lane in each direction will remain closed 24/7, due to light traffic volumes, throughout the project. Construction is scheduled to finish by June 30.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through work zones, 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.
