LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Roadwork and construction progress continues on the Centennial Bowl project in northwest Las Vegas.
The Nevada Department of Transportation will permanently close the northbound US-95 to westbound 215 Beltway ramp at 5 a.m. on Feb. 5.
This ramp will be taken out and rebuilt as a flyover ramp, according to the department, as part of the next phase of the $73 million Centennial Bowl project.
The structure is expected to be 75-feet tall and measure an equivalent of seven football fields while allowing direct connections between the freeways.
During this construction phase, a detour route will also be marked south of the old ramp and remain in place until construction is complete in the fall of 2020.
Once completed the bridge will be the second longest in the state, according to NDOT.
A spokesperson for the government agency also urged motorists to use caution while traveling through the work zone.
