Interstate 15 Northbound Closure TONIGHT in Las Vegas

Post Date:11/27/2018 8:48 AM

LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Interstate 15 northbound between Sahara Avenue and Charleston Boulevard from 10 p.m., November 27, until 4:30 a.m., November 28, in Las Vegas. Additionally, the Sahara Avenue onramp to Interstate 15 northbound will be closed from 9 p.m., November 27, until 5 a.m., November 28.

The temporary closure is needed for installation of Active Traffic Management (ATM) signs as 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. 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. For the latest state highway conditions, visit or call 511 before driving.
