LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
A stretch of northbound Interstate 15 will be closed starting late Wednesday night to accommodate Project Neon work, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.
I-15 will be closed between Spring Mountain Road and Sahara Avenue from 11 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, until about 5 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 6.
There will also be ramp closures in effect:
- The west and eastbound Spring Mountain Road onramps to Interstate 15 northbound will be closed from 9 p.m., September 5, until 6 a.m., September 6.
- The Flamingo Road onramp to Interstate 15 northbound will also be closed from 9 p.m., September 5, until 6 a.m., September 6.

The project is 81 percent complete, according to the agency, and on track for "substantial completion" by the summer of 2019.
