Project Neon, the largest construction project in state history, is expected to improve the flow of traffic along the Spaghetti Bowl, where Interstate 15, U.S. Highway 95 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard intersect.

Northbound U.S. 95 will be closed Wednesday night for continued work to install a high-tech message system.

The Nevada Department of Transportation will close northbound U.S. 95 from Martin Luther King Boulevard to Las Vegas Boulevard from 11 p.m. Wednesday until 4 a.m. Thursday.

An Active Traffic Management sign will be installed. The work is part of Project Neon — a $1 billion, 3.7-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.

Las Vegas Boulevard will close between U.S. 95 and Bonanza Road from 8 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday. The Las Vegas and Casino Center boulevards on-ramps will be closed to northbound U.S. 95 from 9 p.m. Wednesday until 5 a.m. Thursday.

The signs will display full-color dynamic messages, with real-time information on detours, accidents and traffic restrictions. The signs will list upcoming destinations and alert motorists to upcoming closures or lane reductions that occur with accidents or construction.

NDOT plans to install 52 ATM signs going up in various areas along U.S. 95 and I-15.

NDOT also has a free Project Neon smartphone and tablet app available and a hotline available in both English and Spanish at 702-293-6366 for project updates.
