NDOT-LogoMESQUITE, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) announces there will be a shoulder and lane restriction southbound along Interstate-15 in Mesquite from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., December 1718. The restriction takes place 4,000 feet in each direction from Milepost 117.5.

The closures are related to the City of Mesquite’s construction of a new $14.7 million diamond interchange at I-15 at Milepost 118. Meadow Valley Contractors is the design-build contractor, with Horrocks Engineers as construction manager.

“This new exit enhances interstate commerce with a direct link to the 650-acre Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center for improved vehicle access and egress,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It will additionally reduce heavy truck travel on surface streets for smoother commutes.”

The project is scheduled to finish in June 2016. Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible. For current road information go to: www.nvroads.com
