Construction of a bridge expansion project will prompt two temporary overnight closures of the ramps between the Airport Connector and the I-215 overnight Monday, Sept. 10, and again on Thursday, Sept. 20. The closures were originally scheduled for today (Thursday, Sept. 6) and Wednesday, Sept 19, but were pushed back due to scheduling constraints.
The closures will be from 7 p.m. Monday until 5 a.m. Tuesday, and then from 7 p.m. Thursday until 5 a.m. Friday.
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 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.
