I- 11 lanes temporarily closed

The Nevada Department of Transportation is closing Interstate 11’s southbound outside travel lane between Railroad Pass and Wagonwheel Drive from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. today, March 14.

The temporary lane closure is needed for pavement repairs.

Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage and take alternate routes, if possible.
