CLARK COUNTY, NV (KXNT) - Get ready for more road work in Clark County.

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the U.S. Highway 95 northbound exit to Kyle Canyon Road from 7 p.m., April 1, until 7 a.m., April 2, and again from 7 p.m., April 2, until 5 a.m., April 3, in Clark County.

The temporary closure is needed for asphalt paving as part of a $78 million, six-mile-long widening and upgrade of U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground in January 2018. The project calls for expanding the highway from four to six lanes from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road, constructing Elkhorn Road carpool access ramps and building a diverging diamond interchange at Kyle Canyon Road. Other enhancements entail placing decorative rock, erecting signage and lighting, and installing storm drainage. Construction is scheduled to finish this summer.

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 close the Skye Canyon Parkway on-ramp to U.S. Highway 95 northbound from 5 p.m., April 1, until 5 a.m., April 2, in northwest Las Vegas.
