LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Valley drivers survived the full closure of 15 South last weekend between the Spaghetti Bowl and Sahara, but more challenges await this week, with inside lane restrictions 24/7 between Sahara and Silverado Ranch. The restrictions due to paving work will be as follows, 

June 10-12 (Monday-Wednesday)

·   Interstate 15 southbound will have two inside lanes closed 24/7 between I-215 and Silverado Ranch Boulevard from 8 p.m., June 9 until 8 p.m., June 12

June 10-13 (Monday-Thursday)

·   Interstate 15 southbound will have two inside lanes closed 24/7 between Sahara Ave and Silverado Ranch Boulevard from 8 p.m., June 9 until 5 a.m., June 13, with additional nightly lane closures occurring from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m.

June 10-12 (Monday-Wednesday)

·   Interstate 15 northbound will have two inside lanes closed 24/7 between Silverado Ranch Boulevard and I-215 from 12 p.m., June 10 until 8 p.m., June 12.

June 10-14 (Monday-Friday)

·   Interstate 15 northbound will have two inside lanes closed 24/7 between I-215 and Sahara Avenue from 8 p.m., June 10 until 8 p.m., June 14, with additional nightly lane closures occurring from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Project Neon is the widening of I-15 between the Spaghetti Bowl and Sahara and is currently 96% done. Full completion is set for later this summer.

Crews are applying a special crumb rubber asphalt mix, incorporating shredded tires for a smoother, quieter ride. Crumb rubber lasts twice as long as traditional asphalt pavement while also creating a better friction surface with less wet weather splashing. And it also recycles used tires that otherwise would end-up in a landfill. Pave-A-Palooza will use roughly 60,000 discarded tires.
