Click to Tweet: Heads up, commuters! Temporary outage to active traffic management signs on I-15 SB from Flamingo to Russell due to construction, Monday, Sept. 19 through Thursday, Sept. 22.
LAS VEGAS – As part of the I-15 Tropicana project, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) and Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will be relocating a cable line on Interstate 15 southbound near Flamingo Road. This will require a temporary outage of the active traffic management signs on I-15 southbound from Flamingo Road to Russell Road starting at 5 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 19 through Thursday, Sept. 22.
The RTC and NDOT encourage commuters traveling southbound on I-15 to plan their commutes by checking ahead of time for traffic and following posted speed limits. The cable relocation will not directly impact the roadway; however, drivers should still expect delays from the I-15 Tropicana roadwork project.
Upcoming I-15 Tropicana closures (24-hours/7 days per week) include:
- I-15 northbound (frontage) Rd, 215 near Russell reduced to one lane through Nov. 2
- I-15 southbound outside right lane, Russell Rd to I-215 closed through Sept. 28
- I-15 southbound ramp continuing to I-15 southbound over I-215 reduced to one lane through Sept. 21
- I-15 northbound outside right lane, Warm Springs to Hacienda closed through Sept. 28
- I-215 westbound ramp to I-15 northbound closed through Nov. 2
Additionally, there will be nightly restrictions on Dean Martin northbound and southbound including lane closures, reductions, and lane shifts.
