Emergency road repairs prompts I-15 lane reduction near Las Vegas

Updated February 5, 2019 - 5:25 pm

Lane reductions are slated this week for a portion of the main highway linking Southern California and Las Vegas.

Interstate 15 northbound, just south of Terrible’s hotel-casino in Jean, will see the two far right lanes closed between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday, for emergency repairs, the Nevada Department of Transportation announced.

The closure is needed to repair a 12-foot-by-30-foot portion of road damaged by a car fire, NDOT said.

NDOT urges motorists to use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible.
