The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Oso Blanca Road at the 215 Beltway from 7 p.m. May 21 until 7 a.m. May 22 in northwest Las Vegas.

The temporary closure is needed to safely place concrete for northwest flyover girder walls as part of the $73 million next phase of the Centennial Bowl that broke ground in January 2019. Las Vegas Paving Corp. is the general contractor.

The project calls for building new freeway flyover ramps, connecting the eastbound 215 Beltway to U.S. Highway 95 southbound and U.S. Highway 95 northbound to the 215 Beltway westbound.

Construction is scheduled to finish in the late fall.

Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, 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.
