This work is part of Phase E & F of a multi-phase project under way on Las Vegas Boulevard to upgrade infrastructure between Sahara Avenue 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.  Commuters are advised that several agencies have construction projects under way in the resort corridor. Due to the fluid nature of construction activity and traffic conditions, work schedules can change on short notice. Motorists should check navigation apps such as Waze, Google Maps or Apple Maps for the latest real-time information as they head out.


RTC Bus Stops

·         RTC bus stop 1405 Las Vegas Boulevard northbound before Tropicana is closed. The closest northbound Las Vegas Boulevard bus stop is 1371 at MGM/Showcase Mall.

·         RTC bus stop 2812 Tropicana eastbound after Las Vegas Boulevard is closed.
