Strip Construction Project to Impact Traffic Next Week From Sahara to Spring Mountain

Starting Monday morning, July 25, through Friday morning, July 30, traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard between Spring Mountain Road and Sahara Avenue will be reduced to one or two lanes in each direction at various times as work continues on a major construction project there.

Motorists can expect to see construction crews working 24-hour days from Monday at 2 a.m. until Friday at 9 a.m. Longer traffic signal wait times are anticipated at the intersections of Fashion Show Drive, Genting Blvd (formerly Resorts World Drive), Wynn Blvd, Cathedral Way, Convention Center Drive, and Elvis Presley Blvd.

These lane restrictions are needed for the contractor to replace the asphalt pavement and striping on this section of Las Vegas Boulevard.

Motorists are encouraged to stay alert to changing traffic patterns in the area, expect delays and to drive safely.

The lane closures and traffic shifts are part of a construction project that will continue to affect Las Vegas Boulevard from Spring Mountain Road to Sahara Avenue through the fall of 2021. This project is the first phase of a multi-year project being constructed on the Boulevard between Sahara and the 215 Beltway. Each phase includes water line replacement, new pavement, intersection modifications to improve pedestrian crossings, upgrades to traffic signals, LED street lighting systems with Smart poles, and enhanced median landscaping. Las Vegas Paving is the contractor for the first phase of the project.
