Mesquite, NV-

It has been reported that Northbound is currently backed up again on top of Mormon Mesa in between Mesquite and Moapa Valley. The Northbound lane is back up going past Carp Elgin (mm 100) and headed back towards Las Vegas.

All three lanes up the hill turn almost immediately into one lane at the beginning of the top of the hill by the Truck Stop Parking Area. The Northbound Lanes are primarily down to one lane across most of the mesa. Expect major delays.

Southbound has been reported as smooth sailing with only slowdown areas by the construction work zones.

Beaver Dam/Littlefield Virgin River Bridge Project is still going on with one lane both ways. Still several have been going the back way to St. George on Old Highway 91, so there still are some traffic problems at times on the small two-lane road at primary travel times.

The source of the backup on top of the mesa is 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.
