The Nevada Department of Transportation is halting work on bridge and deck repairs along northbound U.S. Highway 95, also known as Interstate 515, between the “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange and Eastern Avenue in downtown Las Vegas from May 24 through May 31 in anticipation of heavy Memorial Day traffic.
 
An estimated 330,000 additional people will visit Southern Nevada during the holiday weekend with 60 percent or 198,000 of those individuals driving.
 
“We anticipate heavy traffic during the Memorial Day weekend, especially around the resort corridor,” said NDOT Director Rudy Malfabon. “We encourage people to drive safely and allow additional time to reach their final destination.”
 
NDOT encourages motorists to stay alert and minimize distractions while driving. It’s important to buckle-up, obey posted speed limits, and don’t drive impaired. The department encourages commuters to remain aware of other motorists and pedestrians.
