ST. GEORGE – North and southbound Interstate 15 will be temporarily closed from mile markers 120 to 122 through Mesquite, Nevada, on the nights of June 12 and 13. The closure is due to the need to replace a power pole holding lines that cross over the interstate.
The two-mile segment of I-15 will be shut down between 9 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. on both nights, according to a statement from Overton Power District No. 5
The district will be replacing the pole carrying a 69-kV line.
During the road closure, motorists on I-15 will be rerouted to Mesquite Boulevard.
The days and hours of the project are subject to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen delays, according to the statement.
“Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during the project,” the statement reads. “Please notify family, friends and neighbors of closure and avoid traveling in the area if possible.”
