LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Part of the I-15 south will be shut down Tuesday overnight, between Spring Mountain and Flamingo from 10:00 p.m. until 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning. The temporary closure is to install the last of 42 Active Traffic Management Signs as part of Project Neon's nearly $1 billion project.

The 42 signs are positioned every half mile along core portions of the 15 and the 95. These signs will provide real time information about detours, crashes, and traffic restrictions.

According to NDOT, they hope the signs can help facilitate traffic flow and reduce secondary crashes. The city of San Diego recently installed the same signs, and they were able to reduce serious crashes by 46%, and overall crashes by 20%.

The ATM signs are expected to go live in May.
Project Neon is now 93% complete, and scheduled to be fully finished in the summer.
