Nellis Air Force Base, in close coordination with Clark County, is closing the intersection at Sloan Lane and Las Vegas Boulevard effective November 19, 2022.

“The safety of the Nellis AFB populace and its neighbors is paramount, which led to the decision to close the intersection” said Col. Joshua D. DeMotts, 99th Air Base Wing commander.

The rapid industrial expansion north of Las Vegas Blvd. between the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Sloan Lane has significantly increased traffic in the vicinity of Nellis AFB, particularly on Las Vegas Blvd. The area on Las Vegas Blvd. between Sloan Lane and Range Road has become increasingly unsafe with the most recent tragedy occurring on September 23, 2022, when two drivers were killed on Las Vegas Blvd. at the Sloan Lane
