Charleston Blvd. Freeway Ramp Closures Begin Feb. 8 in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will make the following Charleston Boulevard freeway ramp closures in downtown Las Vegas:
What: The Interstate 15 northbound off-ramp to Charleston Boulevard eastbound and the Charleston Boulevard on-ramp to Interstate 15 southbound will both be closed from 10 p.m., February 8, until 6 a.m., February 11, in downtown Las Vegas.
Why: The closures are needed to finish paving the connections to the southside of Charleston Boulevard, thereby enabling a traffic switch onto the new pavement the morning of February 11.
February 11-Late March
What: The Interstate 15 northbound off-ramp to Charleston Boulevard westbound and the Charleston Boulevard on-ramp to Interstate 15 northbound will both be closed for 45 days beginning at 10 p.m., February 11, in downtown Las Vegas.
Why: The closures are needed to construct the new Charleston Boulevard on-ramp to Interstate 15 northbound as well as the new northbound slip-ramp between Charleston Boulevard and Alta Drive / Bonneville Avenue in downtown Las Vegas.
The improvements are part of Project Neon’s 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 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.
