Overnight Closure of Airport Connector Ramps Wednesday

 

Get ready for another traffic headache tonight in the McCarran airport connector.

Construction of a bridge expansion will require the closure of the ramps between the connector and the I-215 from 7 p.m. Wednesday through 5 a.m. Thursday.

During the closure, northbound traffic will be directed to take posted detours to the Warm Springs Road off-ramp, where traffic will be directed east on Warm Springs and then back to the I-215 heading west to the Airport Connector Tunnel. Southbound drivers will be detoured to exit the Airport Connector at Hidden Wells Road, turn left (south) on Gillespie Street, then left (east) onto Warm Springs, where they can re-enter the eastbound I-215. The tunnel north of I-215 leading into the airport will remain open during this work.

The airport connector bridge is the first of five bridges that will be expanded as part Clark County Public Works’ federally funded I-215 Airport Connector Phase 1. The project started in January and is expected to be complete in January 2014. Bridges over Paradise Road, Warm Springs Road, Robindale Road and Duck Creek also will be expanded as part of the project.
