    South Grand Avenue in Las Vegas, from to Tilden Avenue to Interstate 25, will have only one lane open within the southbound lanes, until further notice. Motorists are advised to limit speed to 35 mph in this zone, until further notice.

    The lanes are 11 feet wide. Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.

  • Drive down almost any street in Las Vegas and it’s easy to see remnants of the past. Stop for gas at either of the town’s two full-service gas stations and you can experience a small piece of that past.

    Once ubiquitous, full-service gas stations are rarely seen today, and most drivers expect to do the work of pumping gas themselves. But in Las Vegas, there’s no need to do the work yourself thanks to Gabriel’s Independent Station at 905 North Grand Ave., and RJ’s One Stop on South Grand.
