A sec­tion of U.S. High­way 95 will close Mon­day for overnight work in down­town Las Ve­gas as crews in­stall dig­i­tal signs that will flash in­for­ma­tion about ac­ci­dents and de­tours, the Ne­vada Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion said.

Both di­rec­tions of U.S. 95 will close at Martin Luther King Boule­vard from 10 p.m. Mon­day to 5 a.m. Tues­day. Ad­di­tion­ally, Martin Luther King will close be­tween Bo­nanza Road and Min­eral Av­enue from 7 p.m. Mon­day to 6 a.m. Tues­day.

Ad­di­tion­ally, sev­eral free­way ramps will close from 8 p.m. Mon­day to 6 a.m. Tues­day in­clud­ing:

■ The In­ter­state 15 of­framps to Martin Luther King

■ The U.S. 95 of­framps to Martin Luther King

■ The south­bound I-15 ramp to north­bound U.S. 95

■ The Ran­cho Drive on­ramp to south­bound U.S. 95

The ac­tive traf­fic man­age­ment signs are be­ing in­stalled as part of the $1 bil­lion Project Neon, a 3.7-mile-long widen­ing of I-15 from the U.S. 95 in­ter­change to Sa­hara Av­enue.

The first full-color dig­i­tal sign along north­bound U.S. 95 will go on­line by the end of the year, warn­ing com­muters to slow down as they ap­proach on­go­ing con­struc­tion through the Spaghetti Bowl, NDOT spokesman Tony Il­lia said. The signs are ex­pected to re­duce ac­ci­dents and stop-and-go traf­fic for the 300,000 ve­hi­cles that travel daily through Ne­vada’s busiest free­way in­ter­change.
