As part of bridge construction for the Garnet interchange, U.S. Highway 93 will close at Interstate 15 from 9 p.m. July 2 until 6 a.m. July 3, and again from 9 p.m. July 5 until 6 a.m. July 6.

Interstate 15 will also be reduced to one lane in each direction at U.S. Highway 93 during the same time frames. 

Drivers can get around the closure with the following alternative routes:

  • Use the Apex Interchange (Exit 58) to reach I-15 northbound from U.S. 93 southbound
  • Use North Las Vegas Boulevard from the Apex Interchange (Exit 58) to reach U.S. 93 from I-15 northbound
  • Use the Crystal Interchange (Exit 75) to reach I-15 southbound and U.S. 93

The $58 million construction project on the interchange broke ground earlier this year. By the time it's finished, the Nevada Department of Transportation says there will be a modified diverging diamond interchange, along with an extra two lanes in each direction for five miles on U.S. Highway 93.
