Upgrades April 14-May 1
MESQUITE, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) announces right-hand travel lane and shoulder closures along northbound Interstate 15 between Exit 118 (South Lower Flat Top Drive) and Mile Marker 119 in Mesquite from 6:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday, starting April 14 and continuing until May 1.
The temporary lane restrictions are needed for placing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) conduit as part of a $9.1 million, 5.3-mile upgrade to Interstate 15 from just south of West Mesquite Boulevard to the Arizona border in Mesquite, Clark County. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor. The 6-month project calls for milling and placing new asphalt roadway in both directions along Interstate 15 as well as repairing and resurfacing the freeway bridge decks at Exit 120 and Exit 122. Other upgrades entail placing new signage, drainage and lighting, among other improvements.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through work zones, 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.

NDOT and its contractors continue vital highway construction and maintenance activities upkeeping Nevada’s transportation system for essential travel and supply chain deliveries. The department actively practices COVID-19-related public health and safety protocols, including social distancing of six feet or more and restricting groups to 10 or less, thereby keeping our team, families and communities safe and connected.
