Part of Las Vegas Blvd. Reduced to One Lane May 2-7

The northbound side of Las Vegas Boulevard will be limited to one travel lane next week between Spring Mountain Road and Resorts World Drive.

The lane restriction will begin 9 p.m. Sunday, May 2, and last through 10 a.m. Friday, May 7, as crews install new pavement there. Closing multiple travel lanes next week will allow the contractor to expedite the paving operations and limit the overall impact to the surrounding businesses.

The nearby portions of Las Vegas Boulevard will continue to have lane shifts and lane reductions as drivers have seen throughout most of the project.

Installation of the new pavement is one of the final steps in this project, which began in December 2019 and is expected to be substantially complete in July. Additional lane restrictions are expected as the project wraps up.

Las Vegas Paving is the contractor for this project, which is the first of seven phases of construction that will each focus on a section of Las Vegas Boulevard between Sahara and the 215 Beltway. Each phase includes 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 the next phase, which will largely be on the Boulevard between Russell Road and the 215, is expected to begin in about a month.
