Motorists should expect delays getting to and from McCarran International for the next three weeks, as construction crews intermittently work on the ramps linking the eastbound 215 Beltway and the Airport Connector, Clark County officials said.
Those leaving the south end of McCarran won’t be able to directly access the eastbound Beltway from the Airport Connector from 9 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday.
Also, traffic headed east on the Beltway will not be able to take exit 10 leading to the airport from 9 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday, and again from midnight to 5 a.m. June 27 and 28 and on July 1 and 8, county officials said.
Drivers should consider using Russell Road or Tropicana Avenue at the north end of the airport as an alternate route, county spokesman Dan Kulin said.
Traffic on the westbound Beltway will not be affected by the closures.
The closures are part of a larger $52.5 million project that calls for building a new flyover ramp and bridge connecting the southbound Airport Connector to the eastbound Beltway and widening the offramp from the eastbound Beltway to Warm Springs Road, Kulin said.
Construction is expected to finish by fall 2017 on the project, which also calls for building a new bridge at the Warm Springs off-ramp and widening a bridge for traffic using the westbound Beltway over the Airport Connector.
