You think you hate driving over the potholes all over the valley? Try doing it at over 100 miles an hour. F1 Las Vegas is only eight months away, and that leaves the county with limited time to get things race-ready.
Yeah, you know what that means. More orange cones.
Where and when to avoid road resurfacing delays for F1 Las Vegas
Beginning on April 2nd, and running through much of the week, Sands Avenue is set to get resurfaced. The resurfacing will likely focus between the Las Vegas Strip and MSG Sphere along the race route.
Then starting April 9th and continuing for 6 long weeks, the Las Vegas Strip between Sands/Spring Mountain Road and Harmon is set to get a resurfacing of its own. Well, at least the southbound lanes. That’s the side drivers are set to race on. During this time, northbound lanes will be split to allow for traffic in either direction. Considering how hellish it can be driving on Las Vegas Boulevard with two lanes… one sounds like torture. But it’s better than none. Barely.
Road resurfacing continues on Harmon Avenue between Las Vegas Boulevard and the F1 Paddock at the corner of Harmon and Koval the week of May 22nd. Koval Lane itself will get resurfaced the week of June 11th.
The week of August 21st, paving around the MSG Sphere will take place, “paving” the way for one of the most scenic turns of the race.
Speaking of the F1 Paddock, the incredible project is on it’s way to an end of September completion. Paving in the area takes place in mid to late June but the building is taking shape and will be ready over a month before race time.
F1 Las Vegas is expected to have a considerable economic impact on Clark County, potentially higher than hosting the Super Bowl. So here’s to a successful race, and when they are done paving there, they are more than welcome to come to our neighborhood.
