In addition, Las Vegas Boulevard will be partially closed at times on Oct. 26 and 27.

  • Oct. 26 from 5 a.m. to Oct. 28 at 5 a.m. Las Vegas Boulevard Northbound will be closed from Clark Avenue to Stewart.
  • Oct. 26 from 11 p.m. to Oct. 27 at 1 a.m. Las Vegas Boulevard Southbound will be closed from Clark to Stewart.
