The Nevada Department of Transportation recently unveiled its Project Neon mobile phone and tablet app for use with Apple and Android products.
Project Neon is a nearly $1 billion 3.7-mile-long widening of Interstate 15 from the U.S. 95 interchange to Sahara Avenue that broke ground in April 2016.
It was developed by Kiewit Corporation. The free downloadable app features an interactive project map displaying detailed traffic closures and construction activity. It also features project facts, photos, videos, and schedule milestones as well as helpful links, contact information and social media activity. The app additionally offers real time push notifications for major project activities and traffic impacts.
“This is the department’s first mobile app. It’s a significant commitment toward keeping the public informed about Project Neon,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “We realize the importance of embracing new digital media tools and techniques for effectively communicating with residents and visitors.”
