I-15 South Weekend Closure Between U.S. 95 and Charleston Blvd. in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Interstate 15 southbound between U.S. Highway 95 and Charleston Boulevard from 10 p.m., November 16, until 5 a.m., November 19, in downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, the following ramps will be closed from 8 p.m., November 16, until 6 a.m., November 19:
- U.S. Highway 95 northbound to Interstate 15 southbound
- D Street onramp to Interstate 15 southbound
- U.S. Highway 95 northbound offramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard
- Interstate 15 northbound offramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard
All Interstate 15 southbound traffic will be detoured, exiting at U.S. Highway 95 northbound onto Martin Luther King Boulevard and re-entering at the Pinto Lane onramp. The temporary closures are needed to pour concrete for four bridge decks as part of a new High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) flyover structure. Other weekend improvement work includes installing barrier railing, overhead signs, and high mast lights, plus grading and asphalt paving. The upgrades are part of Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that began in 2016. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is 88 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.
