Construction along southbound U.S. Highway 95 was canceled Wednesday night due to rain, prompting the Nevada Department of Transportation to reschedule the work for downtown Las Vegas.
Southbound U.S. 95 will now close between Decatur Boulevard and Rancho Drive from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday, NDOT spokesman Tony Illia said. The same area will also close for overnight work on Sept. 7, Sept. 11 and Sept. 14.
On those same dates, Decatur and Valley View Boulevard onramps to southbound U.S. 95 will close, along with the Rancho Drive exit ramp from the southbound freeway, Illia said.
The closures are needed so that crews can install digital traffic management signs that will flash information about accidents and detours. 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.
