New freeway lighting to be installed this Jan.

Posted at 6:11 PM, Dec 29, 2015
The Nevada Department of Transportation will make $1.2 million in lighting improvements along a 35-mile stretch of Interstate 15 from Jean to the I-15 / U.S. 95 “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange in Las Vegas this January.
Acme Electric is the general contractor.
Work calls for replacing 550 high-pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures with light-emitting diode (LED) lamps.
Work will occur during nighttime hours when traffic is minimal, thereby limiting daytime lane restrictions and commuter inconvenience.
The improvements will begin in January 2016 with anticipated completion by spring 2016. Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate routes, if possible.
