Downtown ramp work finishing early, reopening routes through Spaghetti Bowl

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Work on a downtown freeway ramp is finishing two weeks ahead of schedule, providing some early relief for downtown Las Vegas commuters and visitors.

The ramp from Las Vegas Boulevard to northbound Interstate 515 (U.S. Highway 95) will reopen at 6 a.m. Monday, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT).

That restores a way to get to the west valley and the north valley from downtown.

Restrictions remain for drivers using the Casino Center onramp to I-515. All traffic is routed to the flyover ramp that heads to southbound I-15, and those restrictions will remain in place through late December.

Other temporary closures planned this weekend and the week ahead:... Read More

Former NLV firefighter pleads guilty to reduced charge in wife's overdose death

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Christopher Candito, the former North Las Vegas firefighter accused of providing the drugs that led to his wife’s overdose death, changed his plea on Friday, entering a guilty plea to an involuntary manslaughter charge.

Candito, appearing in Clark County District Court, was originally charged with second-degree murder in the case. He took a plea deal, as previously reported by our I-Team on Thursday.

The judge agreed to lower Candito's bail to $75,000 despite prosecutors' arguments.

Candito's next court date is scheduled for Dec. 10.

In July of this year, Henderson police arrested Candito, 34, in the February 2020 death of his wife, Tiffany Slatsky, 25.

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The big picture at Nevada schools shows that COVID-19 infections are declining.

A state report this week indicates that new cases among staff and students has decreased by 22% over the past two weeks.
