The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) announces there will be a left shoulder restriction north and southbound along Interstate-15 in Mesquite from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., January 25-29. The restriction takes place 3,000 feet in each direction from Milepost 117.5. The closure is need in order to set-up barrier rails and pour median bridge footings as part of 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.

“The project provides a direct route to the 650-acre Mesquite Technology and Commerce Center, improving pick-up and drop-off efficiency,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “It also limits heavy truck traffic 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:
