LAS VEGAS – Upwards of 300,000 people are expected to celebrate New Year’s in Las Vegas, with many of them bringing it in on the Las Vegas Strip. To help make the event safe, the Nevada Department of Transportation is joining other local partners to restrict vehicle access on Las Vegas Boulevard (the Strip) from Sahara to Tropicana Avenues. Below is the data for traffic control on New Year’s Eve (Monday, Dec. 31), with closures from Interstate 15 to the Strip.

Ramp restrictions will be lifted between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, or at the discretion of the Joint Operations Center in the Freeway Arterial System of Transportation. Escalators at Tropicana and the Strip will be shut down from 2 p.m., Dec. 31 to 2 a.m., Jan. 1. Visitors are encouraged to use the stairs or the elevators. Prior to midnight, all stairs and escalators will be barricaded and elevators will be stopped as bridge access will be restricted to pedestrians.
