U.S. Highway 95 Southbound Closed at MLK Tonight in Downtown Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close U.S. Highway 95 southbound at Martin Luther King Boulevard from 10 p.m., February 11, until 5 a.m., February 12, in downtown Las Vegas.
The temporary closure is needed to adjust the overhead digital messaging sign to align with new freeway lane striping as part of Project NEON – the nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long Interstate 15 upgrade from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that finished last summer. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. was the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer.
Motorists should use caution while travelling through work zones, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. 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.
