It's hard to trust a guy who doesn't get the name designations of major highways correct. First of all, it's S.R. 157, Not "57", (a.k.a. Nevada State Highway 157) that leads West into Kyle Canyon. This state highway deadends in the canyon after approximately 22 miles from the turn-off of the other major highway designation mistake.
"I-95" (a.k.a. Interstate Highway 95) is one of the most famous Interstate highways in the country, but it doesn't come within over two-thousand miles of Nevada. It runs the length of the eastern seaboard from Maine to south Florida, including New York City, Washington DC, Hilton Head SC, Savannah GA, and Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida. Does any of that sound like Nevada?
The correct name for the highway in question is "U.S. 95" (a.k.a. United States Highway 95), which leads North out of Las Vegas, NV. I don't know where the poster is from, but I'm guessing southern California. I've found it endemic for people from southern "Cali" to mistakenly refer to any divided, multi-lane, limited-access highway as an "Interstate".

Not sure who you are Braveheart, but you obviously missed guideline #1- Don't be a JACKASS!
If you'd have read the disclaimers I posted on the main Charleston page about where all the information came from, you'd have noticed that I posted the descriptions from the Islands in the Sky guide. If anyone wants to post corrections for me to make just shoot me a PM.
