LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the north bound Interstate 15 off ramp to east bound Charleston Boulevard from 7 p.m., September 7, until 6 a.m., September 8, in downtown Las Vegas.

The preferred detour is the westbound Charleston Boulevard ramp to the Iron Horse Court loop, turning south bound on Grand Central Parkway to access Charleston Boulevard.
Drivers as always should use caution through any cone zone, watch for construction signs and workers, and take alternate routes if possible.
