Durango Drive off-ramp at southbound US 95 will be closed for a month

The Nevada Department of Transportation will close the southbound U.S. Highway 95 Durango Drive off-ramp from 9 p.m., Sept. 9, until 9 p.m., Oct. 9, in northwest Las Vegas. 

The temporary closure is needed for the installation of concrete box storm drainage under the ramp as part of a $78 million, 6-mile-long widening and upgrade to U.S. 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground earlier this year. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor. 

The project calls for placing 11,200 feet of concrete box storm drainage and 400 feet of open channel between the Centennial Bowl and Grand Teton Drive for the Clark County Regional Flood Control District, among other improvements. Construction is halfway done, with anticipated completion in the spring of 2019.
