Project Neon June 2018 update

Roads & Bridges visited the Project Neon site in Las Vegas in early June. At the time, prime contractor Kiewit was pushing to reopen I-15 to full capacity by the fall. By June, the project was 70% complete, and the signature flyover bridge connecting U.S. 95 and I-15 was 75% complete. The current Main Event phase involves Kiewit building 14 bridges, grading and paving new lanes on I-15, and building a number of on- and off-ramps. A total of six interchanges will be built during the course of Project Neon. In early June, only the Rancho interchange was complete—but after the Main Event phase, Kiewit will focus on perhaps the most important interchange that involves Charleston Boulevard.
