Don't drive on the south side of the Valley, especially around I-15 and Russell. This weekend, they will be closing down the entire Interstate at Russell road.
From NDOT: Interstate 15 Southbound Will Be Closed for Construction Marathon -
Interstate 15 will be closed from Russell Road to I-215/CC-215 for
installation of the new railroad bridge over the freeway. All
southbound I-15 traffic will be routed off of the Interstate at Russell
Road first from 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday May 22 to 5 a.m. on Wednesday,
May 23, then from Friday, June 1 at 10:00 p.m. to approximately 5 p.m.
on Sunday, June 3. The ramps from Flamingo Road, Tropicana Boulevard
and Russell Road to southbound I-15; the southbound access roads; and
Dean Martin Dr. at the railroad will also be closed. Dean Martin Dr.
will remain closed and scheduled to reopen by Monday, June 4.
The existing railroad bridge over Interstate 15 southbound will be
removed and new spans will be placed over the freeway and access road.
The movement of the bridge will be done by self-propelled modular
transport vehicles (SPMTs) that will lift the spans from below.
It's going to be one hell of a traffic jam by the Strip and surrounding areas. Please plan ahead and if you do drive, pay attention and try to avoid the area. If you cannot avoid the area,. I would suggest taking Eastern Rd to the east of the I-15 and Decatur to the west and the farther you stay from I-15, the better the traffic will be.
