Oakey Boulevard Closed Tuesday Night in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. -- The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Oakey Boulevard between Charleston Boulevard and Sahara Avenue from 7 p.m., December 26, until 6 a.m., December 27, in downtown Las Vegas. Rancho Drive and Western Avenue are recommended as detour routes.
The temporary closure is needed for bridge work 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. 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 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.
