LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - They're in the home stretch of finishing Project Neon. 

The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the U.S. Highway 95 northbound to Interstate 15 southbound ramp from 10 p.m., April 22, until 4 a.m., April 23, in downtown Las Vegas. Additionally, Interstate 15 southbound will be reduced to one travel lane at the Spaghetti Bowl during the same time frames.

The temporary restrictions are needed for final lane striping as part of Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening 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 and workers will also close between one to two inside travel lanes along north and southbound Interstate 15 between D Street and Charleston Boulevard from 9 p.m., April 23, until 4 a.m., April 24, in downtown Las Vegas.

These temporary restrictions are needed for bridge inspections related to Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening 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.

There's more. Then there will be a pilot car operation in both directions along Kyle Canyon Road (State Route 157) from the Mount Charleston Lodge parking lot, 5375 Kyle Canyon Road, to U.S. Highway 95 in northwest Las Vegas from 3:00 a.m. until 1 p.m., April 27, due to the 4th annual REVEL Mt. Charleston Marathon. Motorists should expect up to 20-minute delays, as a result.

Additionally, Oso Blanca Road will be closed from Gilcrease Avenue north to Kyle Canyon Road during the same time frame. (Motorists should follow the signed detour route). About 2,000 participants are expected for the full marathon with an additional 2,200 runners for the half marathon. For a complete marathon course, go to www.runrevel.com/rmc/course.
