LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is planning several route detours to accommodate multiple street closures for the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 17. Detours and road closures are expected from approximately 2:30 to 11 p.m.
