LAS VEGAS – As Memorial Day weekend draws to a close, travelers departing Las Vegas and heading back to California and other destinations are encountering significant delays on their journey. The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) has reported a substantial 12-mile traffic backup on the southbound lanes of Interstate 15, near the California border, due to heavy traffic volume.
With thousands of drivers taking to the roads to return home after the holiday festivities, motorists are being advised to anticipate delays and plan their travel accordingly. The influx of vehicles has resulted in congested conditions, leading to slower progress along the affected stretch of I-15.
Authorities and transportation officials are working diligently to manage the situation and ensure the safety and smooth flow of traffic. However, with the sheer volume of vehicles on the road, delays are expected, and travelers are urged to exercise patience and caution during their journey.
It is recommended that drivers stay updated on the current traffic conditions through local news outlets and traffic advisory systems. Seeking alternate routes or adjusting travel schedules, if possible, can help mitigate the impact of congestion.
As the Memorial Day holiday weekend comes to an end, the RTC and other transportation agencies are dedicated to minimizing disruptions and assisting travelers to reach their destinations safely and efficiently.
