Construction of two Historic Westside monument signs at the U.S. 95 ramps on Martin L. King Boulevard is planned for Jan. 4-15, 2021. Lane restrictions on the off-ramps generally will be in place during construction working hours, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday, through Jan. 15. U.S. 95 ramps will remain open and accessible. However, there may be a few days when lane restrictions will need to remain around the clock.
The lane restrictions will affect one lane on the westbound off-ramp and a lane on each side of the island on the eastbound off-ramp of U.S. 95 at Martin L. King Boulevard.
“We continue to make improvements in the Historic Westside,” said Ward 5 Councilman Cedric Crear, “preserving precious history while building for the current and future needs of our residents.”
The city of Las Vegas commissioned local West Las Vegas artist Harold Bradford & Associates to design the signs in 2018 as part of Project Neon.
Las Vegas Paving and Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO) are installing the signs, budgeted at $200,000 from the city’s general fund.
