Parts of US 95 in Las Vegas to close this week for new signs

Sections of U.S. Highway 95 will be closed for overnight work for three days this week as crews install digital signs that will flash information about accidents and detours, the Nevada Department of Transportation said.

The two right lanes of northbound U.S. 95 at Las Vegas Boulevard will be closed from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday, and again from 10 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday, NDOT spokesman Tony Illia said.

Additionally, a full closure of northbound U.S. 95 at Las Vegas Boulevard is scheduled from 10 p.m. Wednesday to 4 a.m. Thursday.

The active traffic management signs are being installed as 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.
