The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) announces that the 24-hour-a-day right lane southbound closure along Interstate-15 in Mesquite will be extended until April 8. Meanwhile, right lane closure northbound closure will be continued until April 22.
The restriction takes place 2,500 feet in each direction from Milepost 117.5.
The closure is needed in order to extend the interstate shoulder 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 exit limits heavy truck traffic on surface streets for smoother commutes, while creating a direct link to the 800-acre master-planned Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center for improved pick-up and drop-off efficiency,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia.
The project is scheduled to finish in June. Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible.
