Exit from I-15 to Russell Road Set to Re-Open Soon

Exit from I-15 to Russell Road Set to Re-Open Soon

The exit from I-15 Southbound to Russell Road is currently just dirt and construction equipment, but crews are working hard to re-open the important off ramp.

When it does re-open the exit ramp will be about a quarter of a mile north of where the ramp used to start. The new exit lane will also be blending traffic from people getting onto the freeway from the Tropicana on ramp. The Nevada Department of Transportation is warning people that use the exit ramp to get into the right lane as soon as it is safe to do so.
