Take note Vegas travelers, Caltrans says leave early or stay late if you're traveling from the sin city back to Southern California this week. Southbound Interstate 15 will be shut down from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday to conduct blasting and rock removal along the artery. Northbound delays should be minimal, Caltrans says, but for those heading south, travelers who did not exit before Primm, NV at the state line will be directed off the freeway to the Primm Valley resort area where they'll be able to park until the freeway re-opens. If you know of any alternative driving routes, comment below! (Note: the highway was closed today due to snow)
