Mesquite, NV, May 9, 3:17 pm PST-
The Northbound lanes of Interstate 15 are packed with traffic back-up on top of Mormon Mesa. The paving has resumed for NDOT and downsizing to one lane is more prevalent on top of the mesa. The majority of the affected area is right before coming down off the mesa into the Bunkerville valley, right before Mesquite.
The Southbound lanes are slow but smooth sailing with some slowdown at the Beaver Dam Bridge.
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.
