A lane reduction advisory from the Nevada Dept of Transportation
In and around the Spaghetti Bowl, overnight lane restrictions are standard operating procedure. On the south end of I-15, maybe not so much. Drivers between Cactus and St Rose Parkway have had their fair share of construction adaptations because of ongoing work to build the new exit at Starr Avenue. And that’s the subject of our little get together today. Starting at 7 Monday night and scheduled to run until 4 Tuesday morning, you’ll lose two of the northbound travel lanes between St Rose Parkway and Cactus. NDOT’s Tony Illia tells me crews will be removing barrier rail. Follow the squeeze-down cones and you should be ok.
When work on the $34million dollar Starr interchange is finished – still expected this summer – Starr avenue will connect Las Vegas Blvd to Dean Martin Drive as it goes *under* I-15. NDOT is hoping the new exit will relieve congestion at Cactus and St Rose Parkway.
Buckle up, drive carefully and put down that phone!
