of Las Vegas tackles downtown traffic problems | News

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — The City of Las Vegas has announced that it is taking action to address traffic issues in downtown Las Vegas.

In a press release, the city said the popularity of downtown Las Vegas is creating traffic problems, particularly heavy traffic on Main Street and drivers stopping illegally on Main Street between Ogden Avenues and Carson to drop off, pick up or wait for passengers.

The city said it created a task force made up of representatives from multiple city departments, including the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police and the Taxi Authority, and is working to implement solutions, including:

A joint enforcement effort will take place on Friday, November 12, from 6:00 p.m. to midnight, with periodic enforcement efforts in the coming months.

The city also said a dedicated parking enforcement officer will be permanently scheduled on site Thursday through Sunday from 5:00 p.m. to 3:30 a.m.
