Las Vegas will have flurry of freeway closures this weekend

Updated October 4, 2018 - 11:20 pm

A flurry of closures will hit Project Neon this weekend.

U.S. Highway 95 will be closed at Interstate 15 from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.

The Spaghetti Bowl interchange will remain open, but the ramps at I-15 in both directions to Martin Luther King Boulevard and northbound U.S. 95 to Martin Luther King will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday.

Northbound traffic on U.S. 95 will be redirected to Bonanza Road during the closure. Southbound traffic will be redirected to Martin Luther King Avenue, Symphony Park Avenue and Grand Central Parkway to get back on the freeway.

The northbound offramp from I-15 to Sahara Avenue will close at the same time as the freeway closure. Drivers will be redirected to the Charleston Boulevard exit, westbound to Rancho Drive and southbound to Sahara.

The Transportation Department this week also announced lane and ramp changes south of the Spaghetti Bowl, which went into effect Wednesday morning.

A new on-ramp will make the southbound lanes of I-15 accessible directly from Charleston Boulevard. The ramp had been closed since February, the Transportation Department said.

Southbound drivers exiting to Sahara Avenue will temporarily exit before the offramp to Charleston, the agency said. The southbound offramp to Charleston is a right-hand exit.

Project Neon, in its third and final phase, is 85 percent complete, the department said. The project is expected to be completed next summer.
