New Years Eve Las Vegas Strip Closure

Road Closures

Prepare for strategic navigation amid road closures and traffic constraints. The Las Vegas Strip begins shutting down at 6:30 pm on New Year’s Eve and will be fully closed by 8:00 pm, impacting crucial routes such as I-15 on Tropicana at Industrial and Flamingo at Valley View. Consider alternative routes like Koval, Frank Sinatra, Desert Inn, and Industrial.


Driving Frustrated

Driving through the celebrations can be challenging. Allow extra time due to increased foot traffic and road closures from 5:00 pm on NYE until New Year’s Day. Parking near the Strip is limited, so explore local alternatives such as the Las Vegas Monorail or rideshares.


Vegas Rideshare

When opting for rideshares like Uber and Lyft, anticipate surge pricing, traffic, and longer wait times. Designated pick-up/drop-off spots are available at Frank Sinatra Dr and Koval Lane. Public bus routes will detour from 5:30 pm on New Year’s Eve to 3:00 am on New Year’s Day, including routes 201, 202, and 203.



The Monorail is your go-to transportation for the Strip from 7:00 am on December 31 to 3:00 am on January 1, remaining the sole public transit. Enjoy $1 one-way rides with stops at MGM, Ballys, Flamingo, Harrah’s, and Sahara.
