U.S. Highway 95 Full Closure in Both Directions July 19-20 in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close north and southbound U.S. Highway 95 between Casino Center and Las Vegas boulevards from 11 p.m., July 19, until 4 a.m., July 20, in downtown Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Boulevard onramp to northbound U.S. Highway 95 will also be closed from 8 p.m., July 19, until 6 a.m., July 20. In addition, Las Vegas Boulevard will be shuttered to local traffic between Bonanza Road and Stewart Avenue during the same time frame. The temporary closures are needed to install an Active Traffic Management sign as part of Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 3.7-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes. Check the Project Neon website (NDOTProjectNeon.com) or Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages (@NDOTProjectNeon) for up to date information. There is also a free smart phone and tablet app available, plus a hotline available in both English and Spanish at: 702-293-NEON (6366).
NDOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.
