LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Desert Inn Road will be closed between Sandhill Road and Boulder Highway next week as crews work on the U.S. Highway 95/I-515 bridge.

Crews will be working to rebuild a portion of the bridge that was demolished in August, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.

The section of Desert Inn will close at 9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 13, and it is scheduled to reopen on Friday, Sept. 17, at 5 a.m.

Pedestrians and motorists will not be allowed to use the road.

The project will also cause lane restrictions on southbound I-515. Starting on Monday night at 7 p.m., the highway will be reduced to two lanes between Boulder Highway and Flamingo Road. At 9 p.m., it will go down to a single lane. All lanes will reopen at 5 a.m. The lane restrictions are scheduled Monday night through Thursday night.

Also, the Boulder Highway onramp to southbound I-515 will close from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday night, reopening Friday morning.
