U.S. Highway 95 Closed at I-15 This Weekend in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close north and southbound U.S. Highway 95 at Interstate 15 from 10 p.m., October 5, until 5 a.m., October 8, in downtown Las Vegas. Interstate 15 and the “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange ramps will remain open. However, the following ramps will be closed from 9 p.m., October 5, until 6 a.m., October 8:
• Interstate 15 north and southbound to Martin Luther King Boulevard
• U.S. Highway 95 northbound to Martin Luther King Boulevard
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. 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.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible.

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.
