Those full-color light emitting diode or LED powered signs were developed as part of the $1 billion Project Neon highway construction effort that wrapped up last summer; the largest and most expensive public works job ever undertaken during the state’s 155-year history.
Those LED highway signs are designed to provide real-time information to motorists regarding detours, crashes, speed limit changes, and lane restrictions – thereby improving safety and traffic flows by reducing differential travel speeds and the likelihood of secondary crashes for enhanced operational efficiency, the Nevada DOT said in a statement.
