Virtual look at Project Neon

LAS VEGAS - Project Neon will affect traffic around the Spaghetti Bowl for years to come and now we're getting a peek at what the end result will look like.

NDOT is using virtual reality to give the public a glimpse into the future of Project Neon.

The department has teamed up with a local company to develop 3-D visualizations of the completed project. The interactive videos will also allow the public to view before and after images of the improvements along I-15, between Sahara and the Spaghetti Bowl.

The goal is provide a visual explanation of the largest public works project in Nevada and also keep drivers informed.

"It's a way we can connect with the community and understand what's happening, when it's going to occur. This is a great way to try and catch a large net to voice and kind of hear and communicate what our goal vision is for this project," said Dale Keller, Project Neon senior project manager.

Project Neon broke ground in April but road construction will begin later this month at Charleston and Grand Central Parkway where crews will reconfigure the intersection.

Meanwhile, NDOT is still acquiring property. Out of 190 parcels, 39 have not been signed over. The public can stop by the Project Neon offices near Martin Luther King and I-15 to view the videos. The offices are open six days a week.
