Travel detours for drivers to bypass damaged I-15
News

LAS VEGAS -- Authorities have opened a route through Nevada's Valley of Fire State Park to passenger vehicles detouring around a flood-damaged section of Interstate 15.

Northbound: Take I-15 north to exit 75, drive through the Valley of Fire Highway, turn North on Highway 169. This will connect you back to I-15 northbound above the washout.

Southbound: Take I-15 southbound through Mesquite, take exit 93, then Highway 169 southbound to the Valley of Fire Highway. This will connect you back onto I-15 below the washout.

Trucks traveling between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City are still required to use a roundabout detour between Exit 64 in Nevada and Exit 59 in Utah. That route uses U.S. 93, Nevada State Route 319, and Utah State Route 56 through Panaca, Nevada, and to Cedar City. You can also  turn south onto Utah Route 18 to get to St. George (as shown on map).


Flash flooding Monday washed out a stretch of I-15 around Exit 90 near Moapa.

Both the Valley of Fire State Park and the Lake Mead National Recreation Area are waiving entrance fees so drivers can avoid the closure.
