    Does anybody out there have any recent photos or video (taken within the last week or two) of the LINQ construction and/or Imperial Palace remodeling posted anywhere?

    I thankfully got to see the IP one last time in its classic form at the very end of April. I hate construction so I won't be coming back until next year (I'm learning to enjoy staying downtown).

    So anyway, I have this morbid curiosity about how bad the mess is around, and in front of, the IP. Any links to pics or vids would be appreciated! Thanks :)

    Here's a few pics from the end of may. I'm sure it is probably worse by now.

    Just at Bally's

    I just stayed at Bally's a few days ago with a total view of the LINQ project. There are still clearing and levelling and I didn't see any "building" yet. I am a little disappointed at how slowly this seems to be moving along. Maybe I'm just anxious. I hope either Harrah's or the construction people across from the Mandalay Bay get one of the ferris wheels up someday.

    At Flamingo. Lots of demo still being done. Visible from multiple rooms and sides of the hotel. Poor people in Imperial are in an even worse loc.

    I am staying at Flamingo August 23-28 in a GO room. Is construction noise a big problem early mornings? I will request a room on the south side of the hotel, but we all know requests are not always able to be fulfilled. I have thought about changing hotels, but I really love staying at Flamingo, so I don't want to change unless it is really necessary.

    Was just at the Flamingo in a GO room from July 9-13th. Room faced the pool area. We could see the construction from the room, but we couldn't hear anything.

    Thanks lasvegaslisa. It doesn't sound like it will be a problem (no pun intended, lol).
