June 14, 2018 - 4:17 pm

LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close east and westbound Charleston Boulevard at Interstate 15 in downtown Las Vegas from 7 p.m., June 19, until 6 a.m., June 20, and again from 7 p.m., June 20, until 6 a.m., June 21. The temporary closures are needed for bridge construction 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 nearly 70 percent finished with over 1 million manhours of work recorded thus far. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. The project remains on budget and on scheduled for an anticipated 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.
