Lanes Along U.S. 95 Shifting For Construction Project
The Big Squeeze construction project on U.S. Highway 95 is about to make a shift in lane closures.
Drivers will notice the Northbound highway will still be narrowed to two travel lanes between Interstate 15 and Rancho Drive, but traffic will slide over to the right side of the freeway from 6 a.m. Thursday until mid-September.
Nevada Department of Transportation officials said downtown Las Vegas commuters would be happy to know that the southbound lanes will remain in the current configuration. The move will allow crews to start splitting the northbound and southbound lanes by roughly 70 feet, needed to build an 81-foot-tall flyover ramp for high-occupancy vehicles.
