Heavy Las Vegas Labor Day Weekend Traffic Expected September 1-4
LAS VEGAS, NEV. –The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) anticipates heavy Labor Day weekend traffic from Friday, September 1 through Monday, September 4, in Southern Nevada. Over 300,000 visitors are expected in the Las Vegas valley during the holiday weekend, with 60 percent -- or 180,000 – of those individuals driving.
“We anticipate heavy traffic during the holiday weekend, especially along Interstate 15 and the resort corridor,” said NDOT spokesman Tony Illia. “Accordingly, we encourage people to drive safely and allow additional travel time to reach their destination.”
NDOT encourages motorists to stay alert and minimize distractions while driving. “Don’t drive impaired, obey posted speed limits, and don’t text and drive,” said Illia. “Slow your role, and arrive alive.”
NDOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled construction changes, closures and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors. For the latest state highway conditions, visit nvroads.com or call 511 before driving.
