The closure is required for demolition of southbound Interstate 15 bridges at the Spaghetti Bowl interchange as part of “The Main Event,” which is the third and final major phase of work for Project Neon – a nearly $1 billion 4-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue.

"I moved here before they finished the first ramp in the Spaghetti Bowl, so this is easy to me. Yes, there is construction constantly, that’s what we've been dealing with as a growing city; however they've managed to detour us to where we need to go and if you lived here long enough you know where to go,” said Joe Alvarado, Las Vegas resident.

News 3's Tom Hawley has prepared some alternate route suggestions for our viewers.
