LAS VEGAS (AP) - California transportation officials plan to close southbound lanes on Interstate 15 this week at the Nevada-California state line for an overhead sign installation project.

Caltrans says traffic will be held from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m. Wednesday at the Nevada resort town of Primm.

Officials say there’s no viable detour around the I-15 closure on the busy interstate between Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

But parking, food and restroom facilities are available at Primm.

The new signs are part of a $40 million project to build a new California Highway Patrol commercial vehicle inspection facility near Yates Well Road.

Caltrans is telling truckers and travelers to plan ahead, bring water and ensure that vehicles are in good running condition.
