Got big plans this weekend? Whether you’re traveling by car, plane or public transit, we want to remind you of the expected delays so you can plan to avoid the bottlenecking back-ups!

For those traveling southbound on I-15, our regional Traffic Management Center predicts the best days to travel will be Friday and Saturday ahead of Memorial Day. Despite heavier traffic than usual, Sunday is predicted to be a good day to travel as well. Drivers can expect the heaviest traffic on Memorial Day and are advised to avoid traveling until Tuesday.

To provide some relief on the roads, Nevada Department of Transportation crews will suspend work on some of the region’s biggest projects, such as paving efforts on I-15 near Mesquite, the I-15/215 northern interchange, the Centennial Bowl and the I-515 viaduct rehab project through the downtown area. All work will resume Tuesday, May 31.

If you are looking to ride public transit this holiday weekend, know that our buses will be running on a Sunday schedule on Monday. You can purchase passes through the free rideRTC app to plan and buy passes.

For those flying over the holiday weekend, free parking is available at the Centennial Hills Transit Center or the South Strip Transit Terminal, with direct access to McCarran International Airport’s Ground Level Zero at Terminal 1 via the Centennial Express (CX) or Route 109 Maryland Parkway.
