Watch For Interstate 15 Lane Restrictions Thursday Night In South Clark County

Closure Needed To Erect Steel Sign Structures For On-Going Project

April 04, 2019 - 11:45 am

CLARK COUNTY, NV (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will reduce Interstate 15 down to one travel lane in each direction between Cactus Avenue and St. Rose Parkway from 9 p.m., April 4, until 4 a.m., April 5, in Clark County.

The temporary closure is needed to erect steel sign structures as part of the $34 million Interstate 15 / Starr Avenue interchange project, which broke ground in November 2017. The new interchange will relieve growing traffic congestion at Cactus Avenue and St. Rose Parkway for improved traffic circulation. Improvements call for completing Starr Avenue between Las Vegas Boulevard to the east, and Dean Martin Drive to the west while adding new drought-tolerant landscaping and drainage upgrades, among other enhancements. Work is scheduled to finish this fall.

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 or call 511 before driving.

Local transportation workers will also reduce north and southbound U.S. Highway 95 to one lane in each direction between Martin Luther King and Valley View boulevards from 10 p.m., April 5, until 5 a.m., April 8, in downtown Las Vegas.

These temporary closures are needed for milling and asphalt paving overlay as part of Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue, which broke ground in 2016. Project Neon is 95 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.
