LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will close the northbound U.S. Highway 95 ramp to southbound Interstate 15 from 10 p.m., January 14, until 4 a.m., January 15, and again from 10 p.m., January 15, until 4 a.m., January 16, in downtown Las Vegas.

The temporary closure is needed for work on the 81-foot-high, 2,606-foot-long High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) flyover bridge as part of Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that began in 2016. Project Neon is 92 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion this summer.

The temporary closure is needed for work on the 81-foot-tall, 2,606-foot-long High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) flyover bridge as part of Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that began in 2016. Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. is the design-build general contractor, with Atkins North America as lead designer. Project Neon is 92 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.

There is also a free smart phone 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.
