The 215 in the southwest will have intermittent closures very early Tuesday and some on- and off-ramps in the area will also be closed overnight next week, as work continues on the highway widening project there.
The eastbound side of the 215 between Decatur Boulevard and the I-15 in the southwest will close for 20 minutes at a time between 1 and 3 a.m. on Tuesday, July 28. Law enforcement will be assisting with the closures, during which drivers will be forced to wait. The off-ramps approaching the closures will be open during this time.
The intermittent closures are necessary so crews can safely install a sign bridge, which is a large steel structure that highway signs are attached too.
On the following nights, there will be some closures of the on- and -off-ramps at 215 and Decatur. The closures will be from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to avoid the busiest travel times.
- From 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 28, to 5 a.m. Wednesday, July 29, the eastbound 215 off-ramp to Decatur and the on-ramp from Decatur to westbound 215 will be closed.
- From 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 29, to 5 a.m. Thursday, July 30, the on-ramp from Decatur to eastbound 215 and the westbound 215 off-ramp to Decatur will be closed.
- From 9 p.m. Thursday, July 30, to 5 a.m. Friday, July 31, the eastbound 215 off-ramp to Decatur will be closed.
The closures are necessary as crews continue work on a project that will widen the 215 to add a fourth lane on each side of the highway. Las Vegas Paving is the contractor for the project, which is expected to be finished in the fall.
