SR 612 overlays 9.40 miles of Nellis Boulevard north from SR 593 (Tropicana Boulevard) at Whitney to SR 604 (North Las Vegas Boulevard). The four to six lane arterial travels almost entirely within the unincorporated Sunrise Manor area, straddling the east Las Vegas city line from Charleston Boulevard (SR 159 west) to Owens Avenue. The northernmost 1.25 miles of SR 612 run along the western boundary of Nellis Air Force Base.

The Northeast Interceptor Project installed new sanitary sewer pipeline along a 2.5 mile stretch of Nellis Boulevard between SR 574 (Cheyenne Avenue) and SR 604. Work commenced on August 9, 2017 and concludes in July 2018. The $14.5 million project reduced the six-lane arterial two one lane per direction at times during construction.1
