Lane Reductions and Shifts Start for Cactus Avenue Interchange

Lane Reductions and Shifts Start for Cactus Avenue Interchange

Lane reductions and shifts will start next week along I-15 for construction of the Cactus Avenue interchange.

Starting Wednesday, May 29 through the end of the year, northbound I-15 will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes between the Silverado Ranch and St. Rose Parkway interchanges.

It is just the beginning of a series of lane shifts and reductions as a complete interchange is built connecting Cactus Avenue with I-15.

In June, southbound I-15 traffic will be shifted to the northbound side of the freeway, while crews create three southbound and two northbound lanes on the southbound side of the freeway. When that work is finished, traffic will be shifted to the southbound side.

The $62 million project is designed to relieve traffic congestion along the freeway and at the two nearby interchanges.

The project is expected to last 18 months.

More Closures for Bridge Work Near Airport

More Closures for Bridge Work Near Airport

 

The ongoing bridge work near McCarran Airport will create more traffic headaches for drivers this weekend.

Temporary overnight closures will be in place on the ramps between the airport connector and the eastbound lanes of the I-215 overnight Sunday.

From 7 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday, traffic will be diverted away from both the northbound ramp, which takes traffic off eastbound 215 and then north into the airport, and the southbound ramp, which takes traffic south out of the airport to eastbound 215.

During the closure, the westbound I-215 ramp to the airport will not be affected and will serve as a detour.  Eastbound I-215 traffic will be detoured to the Warm Springs exit and back onto I-215 to use the westbound ramp to the airport tunnel.
