The Cheyenne Avenue onramp to southbound Interstate 15 in North Las Vegas will be closed this weekend, the Nevada Department of Transportation said.
The closure will run from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday as crews install underground storm drain boxes below the ramp, NDOT spokeswoman Adrienne Packer said. The work is related to the city’s $9.2 million project to widen a water channel running alongside I-15.
North Las Vegas city officials have previously said that the channel narrows at Cheyenne, creating a choke point. Widening the channel will allow more water to flow through safely. The project is expected to be completed by spring.
