Wall Street to Close Permanently September 5 in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will permanently close Wall Street in downtown Las Vegas at 6 a.m., September 5, to make way for the future “Neon Gateway” High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) interchange.
The improvements are 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 that broke ground last year. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer.
A new four-lane Western Avenue roadway extension connecting Charleston Boulevard and Grand Central Parkway opened November 11, 2016, forgoing the need of Wall Street. (Western Avenue had previously terminated at Holsum Design Center, just south of Charleston Boulevard). The new link improves mobility by creating another north-south connection into downtown Las Vegas.

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.
