Drivers on Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway can expect nighttime lane closures this week.

The Nevada Department of Transportation says the closures are part of a project to widen 4.8 miles of I-15 between Craig Road and Speedway Boulevard from four to six lanes. The $33.8 million project is designed to alleviate traffic congestion on the corridor. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor.

The night lane restrictions will be from October 22 to 26.
