Road closures in place for Reid’s memorial service

Updated January 8, 2022 - 9:19 am

Several road closures are planned throughout the Las Vegas Valley surrounding former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s memorial services.

On Saturday, roads will be closed on I-15 from Spring Mountain Road to the Spaghetti Bowl between 9 and 11 a.m. Roads will be closed on I-15 from the Spaghetti Bowl to the 215 Beltway, the 215 Beltway to the airport connector and Russell Road near the airport from noon to 3 p.m.

The service for Reid is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday at The Smith Center in downtown Las Vegas. Tickets for the memorial will be distributed through Reid’s office, not the venue.

President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer are among officials who are scheduled to speak during the service. Obama will be delivering the eulogy for Reid, who died Dec. 28.

Police recommend planning alternative routes during these times.
