LAS VEGAS, NEV. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the inside lane along the north and southbound Martin Luther King Boulevard between U.S. Highway 95 and Mineral Avenue from 7 p.m., April 16, until 6 a.m., April 27 in downtown Las Vegas.

The temporary restrictions are needed for paving work as part of Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widenings of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue, which broke ground in 2016.  Project Neon is 95 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.

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. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.

Transportation officials will also close Charleston Boulevard between Commerce Street and Grand Central Parkway from 6 a.m., April 22, until 6 a.m., May 1, in downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, the Charleston Boulevard-Grand Central Parkway intersection will be closed from 8 p.m., April 26, until 6 a.m., May 1.

The Interstate 15 northbound exit ramp to Alta/Bonneville will not be affected by this closure.

The temporary closures are needed for paving, installation of a crash beam along Charleston Boulevard at the Union Pacific Railroad bridge, final intersection improvements and other miscellaneous improvements as part of Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widenings of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue, which broke ground in 2016.  Project Neon is 95 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.
