Overnight I-15 lane closures planned this week near Las Vegas Strip

Updated July 18, 2021 - 11:04 pm

Work associated with a study of HOV lane use will affect overnight traffic on Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Strip this week.

Crews will install detection cameras on I-15 near Spring Mountain Road beginning Monday night and lasting all week, the Nevada Department of Transportation said Friday.

“Detection cameras are being installed to ensure the HOV network is being used as intended,” said Tony Illia, NDOT spokesman in a statement. “The results will help inform, influence, and guide future HOV motorist policy.”

The two-year, $2.6 million project will analyze the use of the 20 miles of HOV lanes between I-15 and U.S. Highway 95.

The nightly lane impacts associated with the project are the following:

Monday night-Tuesday morning

■ The right two lanes on I-15 northbound at Spring Mountain will be closed from 8 p.m. Monday until 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Tuesday night-Wednesday morning

■ The left three lanes and shoulder on I-15 northbound at Spring Mountain will be closed from 8 p.m. Tuesday until 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.

■ The left shoulder on I-15 southbound at Spring Mountain will be closed from 8 p.m. Tuesday until 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.
