UPDATE: If you're thinking of heading up to Mount Charleston to see the snow, you may get stuck in some heavy traffic.  

Parts of the 95 are down to one lane, as part of a new construction project.  

Crews are making improvements to the 95 near the Kyle Canyon exit.  Plans include building an interchange bridge, and adding travel lanes.  

The lane closures start at Skye Canyon Park, and end at Paiute Drive. 

Over a foot of snow was dumped on Mount Charleston this week.  


ORIGINAL: Mount Charleston is seeing the first significant snowfall of the year.

They are hoping to get up to a foot of snow from the storm that is currently passing through the Las Vegas area.
