LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation will close the 215 Beltway between Oso Blanca Road and Sky Pointe Drive tonight from 9 p.m until 5 a.m.

The temporary closure is needed to safely place barrier railing on the new southeast bridge being constructed over the 215 Beltway as part of the current $73 million phase of the Centennial Bowl. The project is scheduled to finish in mid-December.

Drivers looking for alternates during that time can use Elkhorn to the north, or Ann to the south.

The project calls for building new freeway flyover ramps, connecting the eastbound 215 Beltway to U.S. Highway 95 southbound and U.S. Highway 95 northbound to the 215 Beltway westbound. Construction is scheduled to finish in late fall.
