Charleston Boulevard Closed September 28-October 1 in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Charleston Boulevard between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Commerce Street from 10 p.m., September 28, until 5 a.m., October 1, in downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, the northbound Interstate 15 off-ramp to westbound Charleston Boulevard will also be closed from 10 p.m., September 28, until 8 a.m., September 29. However, all north/south routes will remain open. Access to the Holsum Design Center, 231-241 W. Charleston Boulevard, will be maintained off Western Avenue.
The temporary weekend closure is needed for bridge demolition and crash beam foundation work 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. 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.

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.
