I-11 at Horizon Drive Ramp Upgrades, Nightly Closures Feb. 21-26 in Henderson

HENDERSON, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) announces that the Horizon Drive onramp to northbound Interstate 11 and southbound Interstate 11 offramp at Horizon Drive will be closed from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. nightly, beginning the evening of February 21 and continuing through the morning of February 26 in Henderson.

The temporary ramp closures are needed to place decorative rock and boulders alongside the interchange ramps and gores. It’s part of a $12.7 million, 6-mile-long Interstate 11 upgrade between Mile Markers 16.8 and 22.8 in Henderson that began work late last year. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor. The rock and boulders – in addition to their aesthetic value – aid air quality by reducing fugitive airborne dust and limit stormwater runoff while also reducing soil erosion for better slope management.

Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
