I-15 / Charleston Blvd. Closed Nightly May 8-10 in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the Interstate 15 southbound offramp to Charleston Boulevard from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. nightly, beginning Tuesday evening, May 8, and continuing through Thursday morning, May 10, in downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, Charleston Boulevard will be closed in both directions at Interstate 15 during the same time frame.
The temporary closures are needed for bridge construction as part of “The Main Event,” the third and final phase of work for Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue. Construction entails building a total of 28 new bridges. Project Neon is currently 65 percent finished, with anticipated completion in the summer of 2019. 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 with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
