Expect Ramp Closures On The 95 In Downtown Vegas Thursday Night

Ramps Expected To Re-Open Before Morning Commute

July 26, 2018 - 12:31 pm

LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - In Southern Nevada, you can count on the heat, pedestrians and construction work.

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the U.S. Highway 95 northbound to Interstate 15 southbound ramp from 10 p.m., July 26, until 5 a.m., July 27, in downtown Las Vegas. In addition, the Casino Center Boulevard on-ramp to U.S. Highway 95 northbound will also be closed during the aforementioned time frame.

The temporary closures are needed for pavement repairs 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. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is 73 percent and scheduled for substantial completion in the summer of 2019.

Motorists should use caution while traveling 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.
