Starting Saturday, Nov. 19, the portion of Sloan Lane that is at the entrance of Nellis Air Force Base off North Las Vegas Boulevard will be closed to through traffic.
Message boards and signage are posted to announce the closure and make motorists aware that starting Nov. 19 traffic will be directed northeast of the base off Mt. Hood Street and North Hollywood Boulevard. (See Detour Map.) The east side of the Sloan Road and North Las Vegas Boulevard intersection is on federal property. Nellis officials requested the closure to alleviate traffic congestion at the entrance of the base.
Motorists are advised that detours around Sloan Lane may fluctuate in upcoming months to accommodate construction under way in the area.
