I-15 SB Sahara Ave. Exit to Close for 10 Days Starting Oct. 15 in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the Interstate 15 southbound offramp to Sahara Avenue/Highland Drive from 9 p.m., October 15, until 6 a.m., October 26, in Las Vegas. The temporary closure is needed to rebuild the Interstate 15 southbound to Sahara Avenue westbound ramp, creating two lanes with a signalized intersection that improves merging traffic at Rancho Drive. The improved offramp will reopen just north of Charleston Boulevard.
The enhancements are 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. 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.
