F1 Las Vegas Paving Project On The Final Stretch
So far, the “final” round of paving is half way through. It began on Sands Avenue on July 31st between the Sphere and the Strip. The following week had lane closures between Treasure Island and the Bellagio. When will it end!?
F1 Las Vegas “final” stretch of paving paving
The county has done a decent job of updating their website with PDFs… but PDFs are painful. So, read this instead:
- Monday, August 14th through Friday, August 18th: lane closures on the Strip between Bellagio and The Cosmopolitan
- Monday, August 21st through Friday, August 25th: lane closures on Harmon Avenue between Planet Hollywood and Koval Lane
Thankfully that should nearly wrap up paving operations for the public roads. From there, final paving operations should continue on to the F1 Paddock site at Koval and Harmon and around the Sphere property. The final stretch of Koval between the two will get a last pass in October. That will be the end of the road (paving) and then, shortly thereafter, we get to enjoy a race! At least those of us who could afford tickets to the race November 16-18. The rest of us will be watching on TV.
This will all be worth it – we think
This is a massive pain but it comes with perks. The largest of which is the expected financial impact to the area expected to go north of a billion dollars! That impact is far and beyond the additional impact that hosting the Super Bowl will have on the valley. If projections are accurate, this will be a decade long (or longer) boon to the area.
