LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Boulevard, SR-604, under Interstate 15 and the associated on and off ramps at Apex are scheduled to close for a few months so crews can fix damage to the bridge.

According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, the closures are necessary to “accommodate the lowering of SR-604 and the reconstruction of the ramps.” They add crews also need to fix damage to the I-15 bridge by “high-load impacts”.

By lowering the bridge, transportation officials said the minimal height clearance will be increased and reduce the number of times the bridge is hit by tall loads in the future.

Here’s a look at when and where those closures will be.

According to NDOT, detours for these closures will be routed through the Speedway/I-15 interchange (Exit 54) and the I-15/US-93 Interchange (Exit 64).
The closure is part of the ongoing I-15 widening project to expand the freeway from two to three lanes in each direction between Speedway Boulevard and the U.S. 93 interchange.

The $71.5 million project started in Summer 2022 and is expected to be completed this fall.
