LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will reduce east and westbound Charleston Boulevard to two lanes in each direction between Interstate 15 and Shadow Lane in downtown Las Vegas from 7 p.m., December 2, through mid-March 2019. The 100-day lane restriction is needed to widen Charleston Boulevard and build a slip-ramp from eastbound Charleston to Martin Luther King Boulevard. All Interstate 15 freeway ramps to and from Charleston Boulevard will remain open.

The improvements are 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.
