LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Work crews have cleared the flood debris from the main road between Las Vegas into Lincoln County, but are now working to clear the shoulder areas. It’s expected U.S. 93 will reopen around noon on Friday.

The Nevada Department of Transportation closed the highway after flooding washed tons of debris onto the roadway Wednesday evening.

In the meantime, U.S. 93 northbound traffic is being detoured via I-15 to Utah and vice versa for southbound U.S. 93 traffic.

NDOT provided the photos below of work being done on U.S. 93.

State Highway 168 near I-15 at the Glendale exit in northeast Clark County was also closed Thursday morning due to flooding.
