The Nevada Department of Transportation announced that U.S. Highway 93 will shut down at Interstate 15 from 10 a.m. June 10 to 8 a.m. June 11.

NDOT says that the closure is needed so construction crews can lower the highway to meet overhead clearance requirements and accommodate new bridge grinders.

All I-15 ramps will stay open during the closure, and there will be temporary bypasses for northbound onramps and offramps.

The closure comes as part of the $58 million Garnet Interchange reconstruction project, which aims to improve the 55-year-old interchange. That includes building a modified diverging diamond interchange at U.S. 93 and I-15, widening U.S. 93 to four lanes, and extending the Garnet Interchange to just north of Apex Power Parkway.

NDOT says that the project should be finished by the end of 2018.
