The Nevada Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, is preparing to flip the switch on 42 new active traffic management freeway signs on March 25; signs built as part of the massive $1 billion Project NEON highway undertaking.

Those agencies put those full-color LED signs – installed along north and southbound Interstate 15 between Russell Road and Washington Avenue as well as along U.S. Highway 95 between Valley View and Las Vegas boulevards – through extensive testing in January.

Both agencies noted in a statement that those signs will provide real-time driver information about 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.
