A portion of northbound Interstate 15 near downtown Las Vegas will be closed for construction next week.

According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, northbound I-15 between Spring Mountain Road and Sahara Avenue will be closed from 11 p.m. Aug. 15 until 5 a.m. Aug. 16.

NDOT said west and eastbound Spring Mountian Road onramps to Interstate 15 northbound will be closed from 9 p.m. Aug. 15 until 6 a.m. on Aug. 16. The Flamingo onramp to Interstate 15 northbound will also be closed during the same time period.

The closure will allow crews to install overhead Active Traffic Management signs as part of "The Main Event" for Project Neon.

Project Neon is 76 percent finished and scheduled for substantial completion in the summer of 2019, NDOT said.
