Flamingo Corridor Improvements

RTC to begin utility location on Flamingo Road Press Release

FLAMINGO ROAD is a major east-to-west arterial street that connects extensive existing and planned commercial and residential development directly to the heart of the Resort Corridor and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) campus. The combination of large residential populations at the ends of Flamingo Road and concentrated employment at the center generates substantial commuter traffic on Flamingo Road. The existing transit line on the corridor has more than 12,000 passenger boardings daily, making it the most used residential route in the RTC’s transit system. In addition, Flamingo Road includes connections to all major north-south transportation and transit corridors for the 2 million residents of the Las Vegas valley.
