Jones Boulevard Lane Closure at Northern 215 Starts Tuesday, Lasting 6-8 Weeks
Drivers should be extra careful when traveling north on Jones Boulevard around the northern Clark County 215 Bruce Woodbury Beltway during the next couple months.
Starting around 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 14, Jones Boulevard will be reduced to one lane for northbound traffic at the Beltway for the next 6-8 weeks. Usually, motorists have two northbound lanes in that area.
This lane closure is due to the construction of flood control improvements that are part of the ongoing highway construction project.
Also, as previously announced, a new bridge that will carry Bradley Road over the Beltway will open to traffic by 6 a.m. Monday, May 13. Previously there was a traffic signal at the intersection of Bradley and the Beltway. Then in April 2012, that part of Bradley Road was closed and work began on the bridge.
The new bridge and the flood control improvements are both part of a $116 million Beltway widening and improvement project that includes turning the intersections with Jones and Decatur boulevards into full highway interchanges with on- and off-ramps. Las Vegas Paving is contracted to complete the work, which is expected to be finished by summer 2014. Atkins is providing the Construction Management services for Clark County.
