Rancho Drive at Sahara Avenue Closed Feb. 17-19 in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close a 450-foot section of Rancho Drive in both directions, north of Sahara Avenue in downtown Las Vegas from midnight, February 17, until 6 a.m., February 19. The westbound Sahara Avenue right-lane at the Rancho Drive intersection will also be closed during the same time frame.
The closure is needed for lane restriping 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.
