New Northern Beltway Project Closures Coming

          Due to ongoing construction, drivers will not be able to get on or off the Northern 215 Beltway at Lamb Boulevard for the next three months beginning 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3.


          The on- and off-ramps connecting Lamb and the 215 will be closed, and traffic on the 215 will be on the main highway road, which goes under Lamb.


          Meanwhile, the highway exits and entrances at Losee Road remain closed.


          Drivers affected by these closures may use the 215 entrances and exits at Pecos Road or North 5th Street.


          Drivers heading north on Lamb, will be detoured west onto Centennial Parkway and then to Pecos to go either eastbound or westbound on the 215.


          The construction is part of the Northern Beltway improvement project, which will turn the 215 into a full freeway from North 5th Street to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks just west of Range Road. The project includes new interchanges and bridges at Losee, Pecos and Lamb, plus new medians, high-mast lighting, and drainage facilities.


          Drivers are advised to pay attention to area message boards for changes to traffic patterns.


          Las Vegas Paving is the contractor on the project, which is expected to be complete in 2020.
