LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Authorities in Southern Nevada have reopened a highway Monday afternoon near an airbase located outside of Las Vegas after police activity closed it earlier.
Just after noon, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department originally reported that U.S. 95 was closed in both directions near Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs for police activity.
