LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have closed the main route between Las Vegas and Phoenix due to heavy snow that has resulted in a 22-mile line of cars and trucks. The Nevada Department of Transportation reported Thursday that nearly 80 miles of Interstate 11 and U.S. 93 from Boulder City to Kingman, Arizona, was closed. Officials suggested motorists use U.S. Highway 95 as an alternate between Boulder City and Interstate 40 near Needles, California. In the Las Vegas area, motorists are being warned about the possibility of icy road conditions into Friday. Officials say overnight temperatures below freezing could create dangerous black ice conditions for drivers. The National Weather Service in Las Vegas reported a half-inch (1.3 centimeters) of snow at McCarran International Airport and 7 inches (17.8 centimeters) in western parts of the Las Vegas valley. It was the first measurable snowfall on the Las Vegas Strip in a decade.
