U.S. Highway 95 SB Off-Ramp to MLK Blvd. Closed Feb. 3—Late April in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the southbound U.S. Highway 95 off-ramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard from 10 p.m., February 3, until late-April in downtown Las Vegas.
The closure is needed for major ramp reconstruction, adding more lane capacity for reduced freeway back-ups. It will also create a smoother, more efficient flow of traffic for improved safety and easier downtown Las Vegas access. The upgrade is part of 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 93 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion in this summer.
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.
