NB I-15 To Close Wednesday Night Between Spring Mountain And Sahara

Temporary Closures Are Part Of “The Main Event”

August 10, 2018 - 1:25 pm

LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close northbound Interstate 15 between Spring Mountain Road and Sahara Avenue from 11 p.m., August 15, until 5 a.m., August 16, in downtown Las Vegas.

Additional ramp closures include the following:

The west and eastbound Spring Mountain Road onramps to Interstate 15 northbound will be closed from 9 p.m., August 15, until 6 a.m., August 16.

The Flamingo Road onramp to Interstate 15 northbound will also be closed from 9 p.m., August 15, until 6 a.m., August 16.

The temporary closures are needed to install overhead Active Traffic Management signs as part of “The Main Event,” the third and final phase of work for Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion, 4-mile-long widening of I-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 76 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion in the summer of 2019.

Motorists are encouraged to use the Waze app and take alternate routes, including U.S. 95 and the 215 Beltway.

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.

NDOT will also be closing Oso Blanca Road from Mountain Ridge Park to Grand Montecito Parkway from 7 a.m., August 13, until 7 a.m., August 18, in northwest Las Vegas.

The 24/7 closures are needed for storm drainage improvements as part of a $78 million, 6-mile-long widening and upgrade to U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground earlier this year. Las Vegas Paving is the general contractor.
