LAS VEGAS (AP) - Highway Patrol in Nevada and California say they are joining forces to keep drivers safe on the heavily traveled Interstate 15 corridor between the two states.

About 45,000 vehicles enter Nevada from California on I-15 each day, traveling a stretch of highway once considered among the deadliest in the nation.

The two agencies will enhance their patrols beginning Friday and continuing for the next two weekends. Troopers said in a press release that they will be extra vigilant throughout the week.

On Friday, spring break ends for Nevada schools and begins for those in California.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Stuenkel says the joint effort will provide extra manpower on the road during spring break, which is more congested than normal.
