Upcoming I-15 Work

posted Apr 27, 2016, 3:33 PM by Aaron Baker   [ updated Apr 28, 2016, 4:21 PM by Tyson Kennedy ]

The Nevada Department of Transportation announces nightly work along 2,500 feet in each direction from Milepost 117.5 along Interstate 15 in Mesquite from 6:30 p.m. until 6 a.m., May 2 through May 5, and again on the evening of May 8. Traffic will be detoured onto newly constructed north and southbound I-15 on- and off-ramps, with a reduced 45-mph speed limit. The interstate will reopen during the day.

The temporary closures are needed set precast bridge arches as part of the City of Mesquite’s new $14.7 million diamond interchange at Milepost 118. Meadow Valley Contractors is the design-build contractor, with Horrocks Engineers as construction manager.

“The new interstate exit creates a direct link to the Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center for improved pick-up and drop-off efficiency, thereby limiting heavy truck traffic on surface streets for smoother local commutes,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia.

The project is scheduled to finish in June. Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible. For current road information go to: www.nvroads.com


I-15 paving just north of Mesquite will require ramp closures next two weeks

I-15 paving just north of Mesquite will require ramp closures next two weeks

Crews are nearing completion on a 13-mile pavement improvement project along Interstate 15, from just north of Mesquite to the Nevada state line. Work will require on- and off-ramp closures at Exit 8 (Littlefield), Exit 9 (Beaver Dam) from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. to allow for paving and curing time, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Signs indicating detour routes will be in place while the interchange ramps are closed for paving:

·  April 26: Southbound Exit 8 Closed 

·  April 27: Northbound Exit 8 Closed

·  May 1: North and Southbound Exit 8 Closed

·  May 2: Northbound Exit 8 Closed

·  May 3: Southbound Exit 8 Closed

Motorists should expect brief delays while traveling through the work zone through late spring. In an effort to minimize travel delays, most of the paving work will take place nightly, from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday.

The $10.4 million project includes paving a 13-mile stretch of roadway (mileposts 0 to 13), replacing a bridge barrier, sealing the existing bridge deck and installing new guardrail. Crews are expected to complete paving in June.

With limited alternate routes through this corridor, drivers should plan ahead, allow extra travel time, slow down and drive carefully through the work zone, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

Founders Forum about Chief Tosho

posted Apr 13, 2016, 3:13 PM by Aaron Baker   [ updated Apr 21, 2016, 4:53 PM by Tyson Kennedy ]

At 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum will host a lecture by Dr. Edward Leo Lyman in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Lyman’s lecture will focus on the Southern Paiute Native American tribe, including the history of Moapa Paiute Chief Tosho. Chief Tosho was instrumental in keeping the fragile peace of the Valley. This free event is open to the public.

Dr. Edward Leo Lyman has been a history buff his whole life. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Riverside and is an emeritus professor of history. He taught history for over 50 years with a particular interest in transportation from Utah to California. Early transportation routes involving 
Mesquite included pack mule trains, automobiles and the railroad in Meadow Valley, Nevada. Lyman has written two books about wagon travel — “The Arduous Road, The Most Difficult Wagon Road in American History” and “Overland Journey, The Wagon Road from the City of the Saints to the City of Angels.” He has also written articles about the Arrowhead Highway, the first automobile highway from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles, which have been published in Utah, Nevada and California historical quarterly journals. Lyman is currently writing a book on the Southern Paiute Tribe, including the history of Moapa Paiute Chief Tosho, whose home village was in the Mesquite area from 1850-1870.  Lyman currently resides in Silver Reef, Utah.
