2017 New year’s Eve Road Closure Update





New Years 2017 Las Vegas Road Closures

New Year’s Eve afternoon, that one time of the year where you can actually walk down the famous Strip and not worry about getting hit by some crazed taxicab or an absent-minded Uber driver!  Security shuts it down, fences off the resorts and opens the street to people crazy enough to brave the cold, the crazies and the noise.  New Year’s Eve in Vegas is unlike any other place at any other time.

To make that all happen, Metro released an updated schedule of road closures and re-opening times.  All times are approximate and subject to change!
