More Closures for Bridge Work Near Airport

 

The ongoing bridge work near McCarran Airport will create more traffic headaches for drivers this weekend.

Temporary overnight closures will be in place on the ramps between the airport connector and the eastbound lanes of the I-215 overnight Sunday.

From 7 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday, traffic will be diverted away from both the northbound ramp, which takes traffic off eastbound 215 and then north into the airport, and the southbound ramp, which takes traffic south out of the airport to eastbound 215.

During the closure, the westbound I-215 ramp to the airport will not be affected and will serve as a detour.  Eastbound I-215 traffic will be detoured to the Warm Springs exit and back onto I-215 to use the westbound ramp to the airport tunnel.

Traffic exiting the airport tunnel to westbound I-215 will not be affected. Traffic headed toward eastbound I-215 will be detoured to exit at Hidden Well Road and turn south on Gilespie Street to Warm Springs where they can re-access I-215.

The project 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.
