Construction crews will close a section of Northeast 99th Street for paving work later this month, according to the Clark County Public Works department.

The project will close 99th Street to all traffic from Northeast Highway 99 to about 300 feet west of Northeast Seventh Avenue, according to the county. The closure will begin at 10 p.m. Friday, July 19, and continue until no later than 5 a.m. Monday, July 22 -- a duration of up to 55 hours. The closure will also shut down onramps and offramps connecting Interstate 5 to 99th Street in the work area.

Traffic will be detoured to alternate routes, including Northeast 78th Street and Northeast 117th Street, according to the county. Affected businesses along 99th Street can be reached using local roads from Highway 99 and Northeast Hazel Dell Avenue, which will remain open during the work.
