The Nevada Department of Transportation has unveiled its new Project Neon app for use with Apple and Android products.

The free downloadable app keeps track of various Project Neon closures that are a part of the nearly $1 billion 3.7-mile-long widening of I-15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.

The project kicked off in April 2016 and is expected to last three years.

NDOT's Project Neon app features an interactive project map with details on closures and construction activity, as well as project facts, photos, videos, and schedule milestones.

It will also have helpful links and contact information for NDOT. The app will even feature push notifications for major project activities and traffic impacts.

“This is the department’s first mobile app. It’s a significant commitment toward keeping the public informed about Project Neon,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “We realize the importance of embracing new digital media tools and techniques for effectively communicating with residents and visitors.”
