LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - Get ready for more Project Neon work. The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close Interstate 15 southbound between the Spaghetti Bowl interchange and Charleston Boulevard from 10 p.m., December 14, until 5 a.m., December 17, in downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, the following freeway ramps will be closed from 8 p.m., December 14, until 6 a.m., December 17:

• U.S. Highway 95 northbound to Interstate 15 southbound
• D Street on-ramp to Interstate 15 southbound
• U.S. Highway 95 northbound off-ramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard
• Interstate 15 northbound off-ramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard

All Interstate 15 southbound traffic will be detoured to U.S. Highway 95 northbound onto Martin Luther King Boulevard, re-entering Interstate 15 southbound from the new Pinto Lane slip on-ramp. The temporary closure is needed for finishing work on the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) flyover structure 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 90 percent finished 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 smartphone 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.
