LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the northbound U.S. Highway 95 offramp to Buffalo Drive in northwest Las Vegas during the following dates:

8 p.m., March 26, until 5 a.m., March 27 (Tuesday Night-Wednesday Morning)

8 p.m., March 28, until 5 a.m., March 29 (Thursday Night-Friday Morning)

8 p.m., March 31, until 5 a.m., April 1 (Sunday Night-Monday Morning)

The temporary closures are needed to erect falsework for construction of flyover ramps as part of the $73 million next phase of the “Centennial Bowl” interchange, which broke ground in January. The project calls for construction an east-to-south bridge as well as a north-to-west connector that is the equivalent length of seven football fields laid end-to-end. The project is scheduled to finish in late 2021.

Motorists should use caution while traveling 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. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.

Transportation workers will also be making pavement repairs along the northbound U.S. Highway 93 Business Route at the State Route 173 interchange from 9 p.m., March 30, until 3 a.m., March 31, in Boulder City. Although the right lane will be closed while work is being performed, the fast lane will remain open. However, motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible.

Lastly, there will be pavement repairs along southbound Interstate 11 between Wagonwheel and Paradise Hills drives from 12 a.m. until 5 a.m., March 31, in Henderson. Although the right lane will be closed while work is being performed, the fast lane will remain open. However, motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible.
