CLARK COUNTY, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close U.S. Highway 93 thru traffic under Interstate 15 from 7 p.m., November 13, until 7 a.m., November 14, in Clark County. All Interstate 15 ramps and lanes will remain open.

The temporary closure is needed for bridge construction work as part of the new $58 million Interstate 15 / U.S. Highway 93 Garnet Interchange project that broke ground earlier this year. Plans call for building a modified diverging diamond interchange, plus widening U.S. Highway 93 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway for five miles from the new Garnet Interchange to just north of Apex Power Parkway, among other improvements. The project should reach substantial completion by December.

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.

NDOT workers will close the U.S. Highway 95 southbound right travel lane between Martin Luther King Boulevard and City Parkway from 9 p.m., November 13, until December 11 in downtown Las Vegas. 

The 24/7 closure is needed for drainage, roadway, and barrier work as part of Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that began in 2016.  Project Neon is 88 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion in the summer of 2019.
