The ramp bringing traffic from eastbound 215 to the Airport Connector (Exit 10) will be closed overnight Sunday and Monday due to ongoing construction in the area.
The ramp closure will be from 9 p.m. Sunday, April 30, to 5 a.m. Monday, May 1, and then again from 9 p.m. Monday, May 1, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 2.
Drivers planning on using this exit to get to McCarran International Airport during the closure should instead continue east on 215 to Windmill Lane, and use that exit to get back onto westbound 215. The Airport Connector exit from westbound 215 will not be affected by the closure.
The closures are necessary as crews work on the Phase 2 – Airport Connector Project, which includes construction of a new flyover ramp and bridge connecting southbound Airport Connector to eastbound 215, widening the off-ramp from eastbound 215 to Warm Springs Road and construction of a new bridge for that off-ramp, and the widening of a bridge carrying westbound 215 traffic over the Airport Connector. The entire project is expected to be finished in the fall.
The Public Works Department has set up a page on Clark County's website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/PubWorks to provide details about the project. The public can also contact the department at (702) 455-6000 or via email at InTheWorks@ClarkCountyNV.gov for information.
Las Vegas Paving is the contractor for this project, which is being funded in part through Fuel Revenue Indexing. Fuel Revenue Indexing takes a portion of what motorists pay at the pump to fund critical transportation projects. For the average motorist, the cost is about a dime a day to generate up to $700 million to fund 220 projects and create approximately 9,000 jobs. For more information, go to www.rtcsnv.com/fri. To date, Fuel Revenue Indexing has made it possible for local governments to award 138 contracts with a combined value of more than $328 million and creating 4,231 jobs.
