LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Although there will not be a massive fireworks display on the Las Vegas Boulevard on New Year’s Eve this year, the boulevard will still be closed.
According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the world-famous Las Vegas Strip will be closed to vehicular traffic on New Year’s Eve.
The Strip will be closed from Spring Mountain Road to Russell Road. In previous years, it was closed from Sahara Avenue to Russell Road.
Additionally, there will be fewer Las Vegas police officers patrolling the Strip since they expect fewer people in the area, but the same number of officers will be on duty for the Las Vegas valley.
The only fireworks in the valley that are planned at this time will be from the roof of The Plaza hotel-casino in downtown Las Vegas.
The Fremont Street Experience has canceled their NYE party plans and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority will host an online celebration to replace the fireworks show on the Strip.
