Technical Tour

Project NEON Las Vegas

Project NEON will widen 3.7 miles of Interstate 15 between Sahara Avenue and the “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange in downtown Las Vegas. It’s currently the busiest stretch of highway in Nevada with 300,000 vehicles daily, or one-tenth of the state population, seeing 25,000 lane changes an hour. At almost $1 billion, project Neon is the largest public works project in Nevada history, with anticipated completion in Summer 2019.

Major components include:

  • HOV direct connect between U.S. 95 (west of Spaghetti Bowl) and I-15 (south of Spaghetti Bowl)
  • Conversion of express lanes on I-15 to one HOV lane and one general purpose lane
  • Neon Gateway interchange for HOV and rapid transit use
  • Ramp braiding to reduce merge and weave traffic on I-15
  • Reconstruction of I-15/Charleston Boulevard interchange
  • MLK Boulevard realignment with flyover at Charleston Boulevard
  • Grand Central Parkway extension to Western Avenue and Industrial Road
  • Aesthetic and landscape improvements

ACTIVE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

As part of Project Neon, 42 ATM signs will be installed on I-15 and US 95. The strategically placed signs will disseminate lane-specific traveler information.

HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE LANES

N-DOT is converting the existing I-15 express lanes to one HOV and one general purpose lane. HOV users will have direct access to downtown through a new HOV interchange, the Neon Gateway.

Registration for the Project Neon technical tour will be available on-site. Buses will depart the Tropicana Las Vegas for Project Neon at 1:00 pm on Friday November 9.
