LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - A major intersection in the northwest Valley should be avoided this weekend as road crews will be out doing sewer work.

Construction of a 42-inch-diameter sewer main at Cheyenne and Jones will require the intersection to be severely restricted beginning at 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday when the intersection will be reopened to through traffic.

Only a single travel lane will be open east- and westbound on Cheyenne from Rainbow to Michael Way throughout the weekend. Traffic on Jones will be offered right turns only; there will be no through traffic on Jones at Cheyenne. There will be no left turn available from any direction.

Alternate routes during the construction include Rainbow and Decatur Boulevard for north-south travel and Lake Mead Boulevard or Craig Road for east-west travel.  

More than 8,000 feet of new 42-inch sewer main is going in along Cheyenne from Decatur to Sisk Avenue. The project is expected to be done in summer of 2020.
