LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will open the newly constructed Charleston Boulevard on-ramp to Interstate 15 southbound 6 a.m., October 3, in downtown Las Vegas.

The ramp had been closed since February 19 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 85 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion in the summer of 2019.

Check the Project Neon website ( 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.
