More closures related to Project Neon are set to snarl traffic over the weekend.
Both northbound and southbound U.S. 95 will shutter at Interstate 15 from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.
I-15 and the Spaghetti Bowl interchange ramps will remain open this weekend.
Associated ramp closures coinciding with the U.S. 95 closure, which will occur from 9 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday, include: I-15 northbound and southbound to Martin Luther King Boulevard and U.S. 95 northbound to Martin Luther King Boulevard.
Detours to get around the closure are:
Northbound U.S. 95: Take Lake Las Vegas Boulevard north to Bonanza Road south to Martin Luther King Boulevard south to U.S. 95 north onramp.
Southbound U.S. 95: Take Martin Luther King Boulevard south to Symphony Park Avenue east to Grand Central Parkway to I-15 north to U.S. 95 south exit.
The temporary closures are required for bridge construction as part of the third and final phase of work for Project Neon’s nearly $1 billion, 4-mile-long widening of I-15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.
Additionally, the I-15 northbound off-ramp to Sahara Avenue will shutter from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. The separate closure is required for drainage improvements, NDOT said.
Project Neon is 85 percent finished and on schedule for substantial completion in the summer of 2019.
