Emergency repairs to I-15 near Jean.
The two right lanes of the northbound freeway were taken out of service for most of Wednesday (February 6) near the Terrible Herbst Casino at Jean. The Nevada Dept of Transportation says only one lane of traffic was being allowed through. NDOT's Tony Illia sent photos (included in video above) showing damage to the roadway - a roughly 12-foot by 30-foot section of the freeway caused by - - a car fire that happened last year. A fairly substantial section of the road was taken out by the fire. Temporary patching may have prevented flat tires, but NDOT is serious about a better temporary fix until a more permanent repair can be made at a date to be named later.
Buckle up, drive carefully - - and put down that phone!
