SPARKS, NV - Northbound Sparks Boulevard will be closed from Greg Street north to I-80 beginning Friday, May 3 at 6 pm to Monday, May 6, 2013 at 6 am.
The closure allows construction crews to work on concrete paving improvements on Sparks Boulevard for the RTC’s SouthEast Connector Project.
Since traffic volumes are typically lower during the weekend, a weekend closure will have less of an impact for weekday commuter traffic. Additionally, the work zone is very confined and the closure is needed for the safety of workers and motorists.
Motorists are encouraged to use Vista Boulevard or McCarran Boulevard. Southbound Sparks Boulevard will remain open.
