LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close U.S. Highway 95 southbound at Martin Luther King Boulevard from 10 p.m., December 14, until 5 a.m., December 15, in downtown Las Vegas. Martin Luther King Boulevard will also be closed to local traffic between Mineral Avenue and Bonanza Road from 7 p.m., December 14, until 6 a.m., December 15.
Additional ramp closures during the same timeframe include:
- Ramp from Interstate 15 southbound to U.S. Highway 95 northbound

The closures are needed for construction of a carpool flyover structure linking U.S. Highway 95 with Interstate 15 as part of Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 3.7-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the Spaghetti Bowl interchange to Sahara Avenue. 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.
