Martin Luther King Boulevard will be closed through a section of downtown Las Vegas this weekend, affecting access to U.S. Highway 95, the Nevada Department of Transportation said.
The street will be closed between Mineral Avenue and Bonanza Road from 10 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday so that crews can complete some bridge demolition and construction, NDOT spokesman Tony Illia said.
All onramps and offramps linking U.S. 95 and Martin Luther King Boulevard will be closed during that time, along with the street’s onramp to Interstate 15, Illia said.
The work is part of the $1 billion Project Neon, a 3.7-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.
