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.

The Nevada Highway Patrol was also assisting in the investigation.

Officials say the highway was then reopened around 1:45 p.m. after a situation involving a possible explosive detection at the main gate at Creech AFB was resolved after no explosives were detected.
