What’s Driving You Crazy? – Don’t get used to having Eastern back open under the 95/515

Driving You Crazy

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – Don’t get used to having Eastern Avenue back open under the U.S. Highway 95/I-515.

Yes, the 10-day closure of Eastern is scheduled to wrap up late tonight, but the Nevada Department of Transportation’s i515project.com website says they’ll be shutting it down again for six days starting Monday, Oct. 25.

At the same time, they’re also scheduled to close Desert Inn again under the freeway between Boulder Highway and Flamingo Road.

Both closures are for the bridge demolition/replacements that are just part of the overall freeway fix-up project. The 95/515 itself will be open in both work areas while the streets underneath are shut down, although there will be lane restrictions.

If these parts of the freeway are part of your regular commute, I can’t urge you enough to either keep checking that i515 project website, or even signing up for email or text alerts. Just ask the folks at NDOT: it’s sometimes hard to keep up with constantly changing work schedules.

Here’s the link to the project: www.i515project.com

Buckle up, drive carefully – and please put down that phone
