Lane reduction set for Charleston near downtown Las Vegas

As Project Neon reaches the 90 percent complete mark, another long-term closure associated with it is set to get underway.

Charleston Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction from Shadow Lane to Interstate 15 from Sunday through mid-March, the Nevada Department of Transportation reported Friday.

The 100-day closure is needed to widen Charleston Boulevard and construct a slip-ramp from eastbound Charleston to Martin Luther King Boulevard. All I-15 ramps to and from Charleston Boulevard will remain open.

Project Neon, the nearly $1 billion 4-mile widening of I-15 from the Spaghetti Bowl interchange to Sahara Avenue, is slated for “substantial completion” this summer.
