The largest and final phase of Project NEON started yesterday and Las Vegas commuters were feeling the effects Tuesday morning.
NDOT is calling this phase the Main Event. The project picks up where the Big Squeeze and Carnado left off. Crews are widening a four-mile stretch of the 15, between Sahara and the Spaghetti Bowl.
The ramp connecting the 95 south to the 15 south will be down to one lane and detoured. Then, both directions of the 15 will be own to three lanes between Sahara and Washington.
This has caused the resort corridor drive time to spike from its normal 7 minutes to a high of 22 minutes this morning.
Motorists are encouraged to take alternative routes.
