10-mile backup reported on southbound I-15 near Primm

Updated April 18, 2021 - 4:52 pm

A 10-mile backup on southbound Interstate 15 at the Nevada-California border was reported at 4 p.m. Sunday, according to the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada Twitter account.

Earlier in the afternoon, the backup had been 12 miles.

Heavy commuter traffic has been a consistent weekend presence for months as the region reopens.

The drive will not be improving soon as the area is also a few weeks away from an $11 million project to repave a 16-mile stretch of southbound I-15.
