VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System
CC215 North Pecos Bridge Closure
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Individuals traveling to the North Las Vegas VA Medical Center will see major traffic changes near the facility over the next year as a new phase of improvements begin on the northern portion of the Clark County 215 Beltway between North 5th Street and Lamb Boulevard.
The first major impact will be felt beginning July 23 as the current bridge in front of the VA Medical Center at the 215 Beltway and North Pecos Road closes for approximately four months for demolition and construction of a new bypass bridge. Individuals traveling to VA Medical Center eastbound on the 215 from the northwest will be able to exit at Pecos Road, but will need to use S. Lamb Boulevard or Losee Road to travel westbound on the 215 from the facility.
Individuals traveling to the VA Medical Center westbound on the 215 Beltway from Interstate 15 will not be able to exit at North Pecos Road. Travelers will need to exit at S. Lamb Boulevard or Losee Road. North Pecos Road will remain open for eastbound traffic on the 215 Beltway from the facility during this phase of construction.
To avoid construction and traffic delays, those traveling to the VA Medical Center on northbound Interstate 15 from Las Vegas are advised to exit at the Lamb Boulevard and take E. Centennial Pkwy to Pecos Road.
With a construction project of this magnitude, individuals traveling to and from the VA Medical Center are reminded to plan ahead for delays and to remain vigilant as speed limit and traffic flow changes, lane closures, and congestion will impact current commute times.
