    Will be at Harrahs in Oct. How is the traffic on Flamingo/Strip. From I15, is there a quick/easy way to Harrahs? From Harrahs to I15 for other points of interest? Thanks

    I don't know how long the construction is going to last.

    The easy way to I 15 would be to take Flamingo to it. Now with the construction you would want to take the back way down Koval to Sands up Spring Mountain to I 15.

    Last month the Southbound lanes of the Blvd were insane near Monte Carlo - NYNY due to hotel construction eating one of the lanes. It gets jammed from Cosmo South and slows to a crawl.

    Thanks Jimbucc for the tip to I15. I did that sometime ago for different reasons. I now recall Jeans advice on that intersection a week ago. Would going to Harrahs from I15 to Spring Mountain-reverse the route, be OK?

    Yes, there are no one way streets. The route would be the same either way.

    Construction on Flamingo just East of the Strip really sucked a month ago. 24/7. From Audrie to LVB going West was really bad. Took forever to go a couple blocks. Slow going East but not as bad. And I think there was construction on LVB North in front of the Flamingo Hotel too. The car entrance to the Flamingo was closed on LV Blvd. so the only way in was to take Flamingo to Audrie to get to the Flamingo garage.
