Arnona is about a mile long with one lane in each direction. It connects Lake Mead Boulevard to a gravel pit to the north that was previously only accessible from Alto Avenue and Los Feliz Street.

This new road aims to give construction traffic a safer route that also brings the traffic away from denser residential areas.
