LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Kyle Canyon Road exit from north and southbound U.S. Highway 95 from 7 p.m., May 20, until 7 a.m., May 21 in northwest Las Vegas.

The temporary closure is needed for open grade paving work as part of a $78 million, six-mile-long widening and upgrade of U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground in January 2018. The project calls for expanding the highway from four to six lanes from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road, constructing Elkhorn Road carpool access ramps and building a diverging diamond interchange at Kyle Canyon Road. The project is scheduled to finish June 20.

Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled changes, closures, and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.

NDOT will also close Western Avenue between Oakey Boulevard and the old Wall Street from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., May 19, in downtown Las Vegas. (However, business access will still be maintained during the closure).

The temporary restriction is needed for final paving and striping as part of Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue, which broke ground in 2016. Project Neon is 96 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.
