Project Neon barrels remain as more Las Vegas road closures loom

Updated July 2, 2019 - 4:52 pm

Work crews are still in the process of removing the 4,500 orange safety barrels used on Interstate 15 and U.S. Highway 95 during Project Neon.

The Nevada Department of Transportation planned to have them all picked up by July 1, but with a few closures planned within the project’s scope, some areas are still lined with the barrels.

“Crews are still working to pick up all the barrels, but we do have planned Spaghetti Bowl ramp closures next week,” Illia said. “All closures are for painting and final striping.”

The closures include:

Monday night: 10 p.m.-4 a.m.

■ I-15 southbound to U.S. 95 northbound.

■ I-15 northbound offramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard.

■ U.S. 95 northbound offramp to Martin Luther King.
