15 freeway closed at CA-NV state line due to snow

I-15 STATELINE UPDATE @ 10:00 AM – All Northbound and Southbound lanes are now open.

NEVADA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Heavy snow and icy conditions prompted officials to shut down the I-15 freeway near the CA-NV border on President’s Day Monday.

“The I-15 is closed between St. Rose Parkway and Jean due to icy road and crashes,” stated the National Weather Service Las Vegas in a tweet.

Caltrans shut down lanes in both directions at about 5:40 am on Monday, February 18, 2019.

According to a tweet from Caltrans District 8 at 6:17 am, the estimated time of re-opening the freeway is 2 to 3 hours.

Authorities are urging motorist to shelter in place. “Although I-15 is closed at Nevada Stateline you can exit at Primm in Nevada and hold in place until any further openings,” officials said.

Nevada Highway Patrol is advising motorist to expect major delays and avoid the area.
