LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – The building of the new and improved westbound lanes of Tropicana over I-15 will start soon.

Have you seen the timelapse of how the old and outdated lanes came tumbling down? [see video above]

With thanks to the Nevada Department of Transportation’s i15Trop Team, the video starts at 10pm Friday, January 27, and, before you know it, the methodical take-down’s done. With the clean up underway by 10 Sunday night.

Traffic in both directions on I-15 was back up and running by 4 Monday morning the 30th.

By the way: are you still getting used to the diverging diamond on Tropicana? Are you avoiding Trop altogether? Let us know.

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