PROJECT NEON: More closures ahead for downtown Las Vegas


The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will be closing the northbound Interstate 15 to Martin Luther King Boulevard offramp from 10 p.m., March 13 until 5 a.m., March 16, in downtown Las Vegas.

The temporary closure is required for bridge demolition as part of “The Main Event,” the third and final phase of work for Project Neon’s $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that began in 2016. The project is 60 percent complete and scheduled to finish by summer 2019.
