I-15, U.S. 95 Northbound to MLK Offramps Closed July 13-16 in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the northbound Interstate 15 and northbound U.S. Highway 95 off-ramps to Martin Luther King Boulevard from 10 p.m., July 13, until 5 a.m., July 16, in downtown Las Vegas. Motorists are strongly encouraged to use the Waze navigation app for trouble-free travel.
The temporary closures are needed for bridge demolition work related to “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. Demolished concrete will be screened, crushed and reused as fill material as part of the project’s commitment to sustainability and the environment. Project Neon will construct 28 new bridges, half of which are done, due to age and capacity. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is Project Neon is 73 percent and scheduled for completion in the summer of 2019.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible.
