Ongoing sewer work will continue with 24-hour traffic control restrictions. From 9 p.m. – 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, travel lanes along Flamingo Road and Swenson Street will be restricted during night work. During non-work hours, two travel lanes along Flamingo Road will remain open.

Koval Lane to Paradise Road
Water line repair work continues requiring 24-hour lane restrictions. Please be alert to current traffic configurations as the work progresses.

Paradise Road to Eastern Avenue
Median construction will continue to close the inside lane in both the eastbound and westbound directions. This closure will take place 24-hours a day for approximately three months.

Rainbow Boulevard to Durango Boulevard – Eastbound
Beginning on Monday, July 27, Work to install pedestrian shelters will require a right lane closure during various hours. This restriction will be in place for two weeks.

Transit Route 202 Detours / Shuttle Service
Due to the long-term construction project on Flamingo Road east of Boulder Highway and resulting delays, route 202 will be shortened and a shuttle will cover the service lost by the shortened route. This change went into effect April 24 and will continue through the end of July.

Flamingo Project Information
Flamingo Rd. 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.
