Mesquite, NV-

The Northbound lanes of Interstate 15 have been reported as mainly “stopped” travel with backed-up traffic for a few miles. In the recent past, the problems were on the Mormon Mesa by mm 100 Carp Elgin. While there still is a slowing of traffic, the majority of the problems are at the Virgin River Bridge Project at Beaver Dam/Littlefield Exit on the Arizona side of the Mesquite area. Expect a 1-2 hours delay for the Northbound lanes if headed to Utah.

The Southbound lanes are starting to see some congestion at the Virgin River Project construction zone due to tourist travel to Las Vegas for the weekend. Expect some delay but a smoother ride than Northbound lanes.

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.

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.
