U.S. 95 near downtown Las Vegas closing overnight

A stretch of U.S. 95 near downtown Las Vegas will shut down overnight twice this week beginning tonight.

The Nevada Department of Transportation will shut down southbound U.S. 95 between Decatur Boulevard and Rancho Drive from 11 p.m. tonight until 4 a.m. Wednesday. The same stretch will close again from 11 p.m. Thursday to 4 a.m. Friday.

Additionally, the Decatur and Valley View boulevard freeway on-ramps will be closed during the same periods, as will the southbound Rancho Drive exit.

The temporary closures are the latest of several over the last few months for installation of Active Traffic Management signs as part of the Project Neon freeway widening.

The signs will provide real-time information to motorists about detours, accidents and traffic restrictions, NDOT officials said.

Fifty-two such signs will go up along U.S. 95 and Interstate 15. The largest signs measure 13 feet tall by 77 feet wide.

Motorists should use caution while travelling through the work zone, heed construction signs and take alternate routes if possible.
