The weaving movement on I-215 westbound between the system interchange ramps and the Gibson Road off-ramp resulted in increased travel time and delay. In 2017, I-215 was re-striped and barriers were placed to prevent motorists on Lake Mead Parkway and I-215 West from exiting at Gibson Road. These barriers eliminated access for westbound motorists to exit at Gibson Road.
