Work Expected To Last Ten Days With Detours In Place

June 12, 2018 - 12:13 pm

LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the eastbound Durango Drive onramp to southbound U.S. Highway 95 from 9 p.m., June 15, until 5 a.m., June 25, in northwest Las Vegas. The 24/7 closure is needed for the installation of concrete box storm drainage as part of a $78 million, 6-mile-long widening and upgrade to U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground earlier this year. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor.

Northbound Durango Drive traffic will be detoured to southbound Oso Blanca Road. Meanwhile, Oso Blanca Road traffic will be re-routed to southbound Durango Drive then the eastbound 215 Beltway onto the southbound U.S. Highway 95 onramp. Drivers may also stay on Oso Blanca Road to the southbound U.S. Highway 95 onramp.

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.
