The Nevada Department of Transportation will be closing Exits 120 and 122 in Mesquite at various times from 5 a.m. Monday through 5 p.m. Wednesday.

However, only one ramp will be closed at a time with all detours in place in advance.

The roadwork is a part of a $9.1 million, 5.3-mile upgrade to I-15 through Mesquite to the Arizona border that began in early April and is anticipated concluded sometime in September, according to NDOT.

The project calls for milling and placing new asphalt roadway in both directions along I-15 as well as repairing and resurfacing the freeway bridge decks at Exit 120 and Exit 122. Work on also includes the installation of new signage, drainage and lighting, among other improvements. Work is occurring in up to 2-mile increments Monday through Friday.

Motorists are asked to pay attention and use caution while traveling through the work zone, and take alternative routes if possible.
