Traffic along Las Vegas Boulevard from Spring Mountain Road to Sahara Avenue could be limited to one lane in each direction at various times overnight Sunday.
The single-lane restrictions may be in place from 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9 to 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 21. It is possible that only one side of Las Vegas Boulevard will be reduced to one lane at a time, and that the lane restriction will primarily impact the Boulevard between Spring Mountain and Resorts World Drive.
Outside of those times, drivers should expect at least two lanes will be open in each direction along this section of Las Vegas Boulevard through Feb. 21. There will be times when there will be no lane restrictions on one side or the other.
These lane closures are part of a major construction project that includes repaving Las Vegas Boulevard, replacing a main water line, and upgrades to traffic signals and street light poles. Construction is expected to impact Las Vegas Boulevard from Spring Mountain to Sahara through early 2021. Las Vegas Paving is the contractor for this project.
Information about the project and related traffic impacts is available at www.ResortCorridor.com. Residents are encouraged to visit the website to sign up to receive email updates about ongoing construction impacts. In addition, residents and visitors who use the Regional Transportation Commission bus service along Las Vegas Boulevard should visit the RTC’s website for information about changes to bus routes and bus stop closures during construction.
This project is the first of seven phases of construction that will each focus on a section of the Boulevard between Sahara and the 215 Beltway. Each phase will include the water line replacement, new pavement, intersection modifications to improve pedestrian crossings, upgrades to traffic signal and street lighting systems with Smart poles and enhanced median landscaping with LED lighting. Work on all of the phases is expected to take more than five years to complete.
