U.S. 95 at I-15 in Las Vegas set for overnight closures this week

Truck drivers planning to go through the Las Vegas area overnight this week should plan for detours as the north and southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 95 at I-15 in downtown Vegas will be closed for construction.

The overnight closures are set for Sept. 18-20 and Sept. 24 and 26 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. I-15 and the “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange ramps will remain open during the closures. However, the I-15 north and southbound ramps to Martin Luther King Boulevard and the U.S. 95 northbound ramp to MLK Boulevard will be closed during those nights from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The Nevada Department of Transportation says the closures are needed for construction of a new I-15 northbound bridge over U.S. 95.

The recommended U.S. 95 northbound detour is Las Vegas Boulevard to Bonanza Road to MLK Boulevard to re-enter the freeway. Southbound traffic is advised to take MLK to Bonneville Avenue to Grand Central Parkway.
