UPDATED: April 25, 2022, @ 4:08 pm PST – NB by Logandale and Overton exit is backed up for miles due to the paving on NB being done. Expect 1.5 hours to get to Mesquite from Overton.

Mesquite, NV-

Surprisingly, the traffic problems right now are not by Mesquite, but closer to the Logandale/Overton Exit. MM 100 – Carp Elgin Exit is having major traffic backup due to the paving and prep work for paving which started on I-15 last night. It is down to one lane from about mm 97-mm 104.

Most are reporting 45 minutes to get through on the Northbound Lanes.

Southbound is going well, clear, and with no problems. A little slowdown by the “one-lane” areas but getting through relevantly fast.

At moment, no reports of accidents.

Also, a reminder, that crews have begun around-the-clock repaving work on I-15 south of Mesquite.

Paving will occur in both the north- and southbound directions of I-15.  The roadway will be reduced to one lane in either direction in work zones up to four miles.  Crews will work double shifts, five days per week during the paving operation.

Remember, the major problem of traffic stoppage and congestion is the lack of drivers utilizing the zipper method of merging. Please be careful, respectful, and considerate of others when merging and traveling. Drive the posted speed limits and travel safely!
