I-15 Northbound Offramp to Charleston Blvd Eastbound Two-Month Closure Starts September 9 in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the northbound Interstate 15 offramp to eastbound Charleston Boulevard from 10 p.m., September 9, until mid-November in downtown Las Vegas. The closure is needed to reconstruct the Charleston Boulevard exit, creating a single seamless ramp instead of the current dual ramp configuration.
The work is 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. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is 81 percent finished and scheduled for substantial 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. 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.
