U.S. Highway 95 Southbound Closure September 14-15 in Downtown Las Vegas

Post Date:09/12/2017 11:39 AM

LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close southbound U.S. Highway 95 between Decatur Boulevard and Rancho Drive in downtown Las Vegas from 11 p.m., September 14, until 4 a.m., September 15. The Decatur and Valley View Boulevard freeway onramps will also be closed during the same time frames, along with the southbound Rancho Drive freeway exit.

The closure is needed for the installation of Active Traffic Management (ATM) signs 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 that broke ground last year. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer.

Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. Check the Project Neon website ( or Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages (@NDOTProjectNeon) for up to date information. There is also a free smart phone 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 or call 511 before driving.
