Overnight closure of US 95 bumped to Wednesday night

A planned overnight closure of U.S. Highway 95 near the Spaghetti Bowl has been bumped back a day.

Delivery delays of nine concrete bridge girders prompted the Nevada Department of Transportation to push back the scheduled overnight closure Tuesday of U.S. 95 at Interstate 15 until Wednesday night, NDOT spokesman Tony Ilia said. The closures are part of the extensive Project Neon roads revamping project.

Both directions of the highway will close nightly on Wednesday and Thursday, beginning at 8 p.m. and lasting until 5 a.m., according to the department. The stretch of U.S. 95 will be open this weekend during the Life is Beautiful festival in nearby downtown Las Vegas. The nightly closures of that stretch will resume Monday as well as Sept. 26-27.

The Spaghetti Bowl interchange ramps will stay open during the nightly closures, but the I-15 ramps in both directions to Martin Luther King Boulevard and the U.S. 95 northbound ramp to Martin Luther King will be closed those nights from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m., according to the department.
