As construction continues on new 80-foot-tall, decorative, illuminated arches that will form a gateway to downtown Las Vegas on Las Vegas Boulevard, overnight closures between St. Louis and Bob Stupak avenues are planned Aug. 10-13, 23-24 and 26-27 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night.

At all other times, one lane in each direction remains open in the construction area, but motorists should expect delays. Paradise Road is recommended for a southbound alternate route and Fairfield Avenue for the northbound detour.

Construction began in March on the $6.5 million project that is scheduled to be complete in September 2020.

The arches will cross over Las Vegas Boulevard in the area between St. Louis and Bob Stupak avenues, and will feature an emblem hanging over the boulevard with a script “Las Vegas.”

The arches are a part of the continued updating of infrastructure and signage happening in downtown Las Vegas, and will be near the popular showgirl installation where Las Vegas Boulevard and Main Street come together.

A rendering of the new arches and a map of the expected closures and suggested alternate routes can be found here.
