Primm is about 45 miles southwest of Las Vegas.
On Labor Day weekend, tourists were stuck in a 22-mile backup on their way home to California.
Recently, the Review-Journal reported that Interstate 15 traffic volumes were creeping up as resort properties continued to reopen, but officials had said don’t expect those numbers to ramp up to normal levels anytime soon.
When the first casinos reopened June 4, there had been a slight uptick in traffic on I-15 at the California-Nevada border.
