LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The city of Las Vegas illuminated its new, 80-foot-tall Gateway Arches spanning Las Vegas Boulevard between St. Louis and Bob Stupak avenues at the base of The STRAT hotel-casino Wednesday evening.

Conceived and designed by Selbert Perkins Design and fabricated and installed by YESCO (the 100-year-old company synonymous with Las Vegas’ most iconic signs), the archway marks travelers’ official arrival into the city of Las Vegas.

The blue illuminated arches form a towering gateway to the city’s burgeoning downtown and feature a pink, retro-inspired Las Vegas emblem suspended above the boulevard.

While the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign at the south end of the Strip enjoys world renown, many people do not realize it lies outside city of Las Vegas’ boundaries in unincorporated Clark County, Nevada.

The new, brightly lit, Gateway Arches will welcome visitors to the city of Las Vegas as they travel north on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Other high-profile Las Vegas projects YESCO has fabricated and installed during its centennial year include the sign package for Allegiant Stadium, as well as interior and exterior signage for downtown’s new Circa Resort & Casino.

The Gateway Arches will be illuminated every day, beginning at dusk.
