HENDERSON, NV (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will make the following lane restrictions as part of the $3.3 million, 2-mile-long beautification project along Interstate 515, also known as U.S. Highway 95, at Russell Road in Henderson.

April 7-10

*Russell Road will be restricted to one lane in both directions between Whitney Ranch Drive and Stephanie Street for freeway bridge painting from 6 p.m., April 7, until 6 a.m., April 10.

*The northside Russell Road sidewalk will be closed near Whitney Ranch Drive for drainage improvements from 6 p.m., April 7, until 6 a.m., April 10.

April 7-22

*Interstate 515 lane reductions between Sunset Road and Tropicana Avenue from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. nightly, beginning the evening of April 7 and continuing through the morning of April 22 in Henderson.

*The Russell Road on-ramps and off-ramps at Interstate 515 will be closed for painting from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. nightly, beginning the evening of April 7 and continuing through the morning of April 22 in Henderson.

The project calls for placing 15,000 tons of decorative rock and boulders along both sides of the interstate, providing visual enhancement while curtailing slope erosion. Other work also entails desert landscaping, bridge painting, LED-lit metal structures, and rock walls, plus drainage improvements, including lining channel with geotextile fabrics. Construction is scheduled to finish in late May.

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 construction 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.

Transportation workers will also reduce Alta Drive/Bonneville Avenue to one lane in each direction between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Commerce Street from 7 p.m., April 8, until 6 a.m., April 12, in downtown Las Vegas.

The temporary restrictions are needed for milling and asphalt paving as well as lane 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 95 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.
