Updated March 10, 2018 - 1:33 pm

More road closures this weekend are making it even tougher to get through the heart of Las Vegas.

U.S. Highway 95 running through the Spaghetti Bowl near downtown Las Vegas is closed to through traffic between Martin Luther King and Las Vegas boulevards. The closure began at 10 p.m. Friday and will continue until 5 a.m. Monday, according the Nevada Department of Transportation.

Motorists traveling north on U.S. 95 will have to exit the freeway at Las Vegas Boulevard.

Exit on Las Vegas Boulevard to Bonanza Road. West on Bonanza to Martin Luther King. South on Martin Luther King to U.S. 95 on-ramp. Continue north on U.S. 95.

Traveling south on U.S. 95

Motorists traveling south on U.S. 95 will have to exit the freeway at Martin Luther King.

Follow Martin Luther King south to Alta Drive. East on Alta Drive (which becomes West Bonneville Avenue) to Grand Central Parkway. Follow Grand Central Parkway to Interstate 15 on-ramp. Staying in far right lane, follow I-15 exit for southbound U.S. 95.

Surface streets

Getting to I-15 from northbound U.S. 95
