LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close U.S. Highway 95 northbound and southbound under Interstate 15 from 9 p.m., October 29, until 5 a.m., October 30, in downtown Las Vegas. Interstate 15 will remain open. However, the following ramps will be closed:

From 9 p.m., October 29, until 5 a.m., October 30

U.S. Highway 95 northbound to Interstate 15 northbound

From 8 p.m., October 29, until 6 a.m., October 30

Interstate 15 north and southbound to Martin Luther King Boulevard

The temporary closures are needed for bridge construction and sign erection 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 Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue. Project Neon is 85 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. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.

There is also another project NDOT will be working on. 

Transportation workers will close the Interstate 15 northbound offramp to U.S. Highway 93 from 7 p.m., October 29, until 7 a.m., October 30, in Clark County.

The temporary closure is needed for earthwork and paving activity as part of the new $58 million Interstate 15 / U.S. Highway 93 Garnet Interchange project that broke ground earlier this year. Plans call for building a modified diverging diamond interchange, plus widening U.S. Highway 93 from a two-lane highway to a four-lane divided highway for five miles from the new Garnet Interchange to just north of Apex Power Parkway, among other improvements. The project should reach substantial completion by December.
