Mesquite, NV, May 14, 1:15 pm PST-

At the moment, the lanes for both Southbound and Northbound of the Interstate-15 are smooth sailing with just a little turbulence at construction work zones. People are finding minimal delay with approximately 15-30 minutes max.

Lanes are more open today on top of the mesa, with a few one-lane areas, but less length in distance.

The paving has resumed for NDOT and downsizing to one lane is more prevalent on top of the mesa. This has caused major traffic congestion and backup for literally… miles.

Paving will occur in both the northbound and southbound directions of I-15 south of Mesquite. The Virgin River Bridge Project by Beaver Dam is still a slowdown but still moving on both sides of the freeway.

Weather predictions are going to be hitting the 90s tomorrow and triple digits during the weekend, so make plans to have plenty of water and gasoline for the extra time, expected to be between 2-4 hours.

The best times to travel with less traffic are early in the morning before 8:00 am PST and in the evenings after 10:00 pm PST.
