CREATED Feb. 21, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Nevada Department of Transportation will implement traffic restrictions this weekend on Interstate 15, near the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge, south of Lake Mead Boulevard.

The restrictions will be in place from 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 through 6 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 24 on northbound and southbound I-15.

Travel will be reduced to two lanes in both directions in order to clean an overhead sign and install cages designed to prevent graffiti on the structure.

In addition to closing the two right lanes in both directions, the northbound I-15 on-ramp from Washington Avenue, and the southbound I-15 on-ramp from eastbound Lake Mead will be closed.

Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes.
