LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Drivers should start planning ahead for temporary full closures of I-15 at Tropicana Avenue and associated ramps in January of 2023, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.

The closures are part of the I-15/Tropicana Design Build project, which is moving into a “critical” phase known as “Dropicana,” the department said Tuesday.

Beginning Jan. 17, the I-15 southbound off ramps to Tropicana both ways will be closed. The ramp to westbound Tropicana will be closed for about 9 months, and the flyover ramp to eastbound Tropicana will remain closed for approximately 18 months.

Tropicana will close in both directions between Dean Martin Drive and New York-New York from Jan. 22 to 30.

I-15 will close in both directions at Tropicana from 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27 to 5 a.m. Monday, Jan 30.

Crews will demolish and rebuild the current eastbound lanes of Tropicana over I-15 and Frank Sinatra Drive. Much of the flyover ramp from southbound I-15 to eastbound Tropicana will also be demolished and rebuilt, which is necessary so the road can be widened and raised to add capacity and increase safety, according to the department.
