McCarran Airport ramp set for closure Sunday

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Bridge expansion work will force traffic to divert at the McCarran Airport Connector beginning Sunday night.

Clark County Department of Aviation said the temporary closure will last from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning.

Traffic will be diverted off the ramp connecting the eastbound Interstate 215 to the northbound connector. The ramp from the southbound connector to eastbound I-215 will also be diverted.

The westbound I-215 ramp will serve as a detour.

Eastbound I-215 traffic will be detoured to the Warm Springs exit and back onto I-215 to use the westbound ramp to the airport tunnel. Traffic exiting the airport tunnel to westbound I-215 will not be affected. Traffic headed toward eastbound I-215 will be detoured to exit at Hidden Well Road and turn south on Gilespie Street to Warm Springs where they can re-access I-215.

Aviation officials said the bridge expansion work is part of project expected to be done in January, 2014.
