CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Officials are planning a public meeting in Las Vegas about traffic snarls and disruption expected during the biggest highway improvement project in Nevada history.
Project Neon officials will offer a project overview at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, during a 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. meeting at the Springs Preserve on Valley View Boulevard.
There will also be an audience comment period.
Nevada Department of Transportation, Las Vegas city and Federal Highway Administration administrators say improving the 3.7 miles of I-15 from Sahara Avenue to the Spaghetti Bowl interchange will cost more than $1 billion.
It's the busiest stretch of road in the state, handling more than a quarter of a million vehicles a day.
N-DOT spokeswoman Ranya Botros says work is currently slated to begin in 2016.
