Nevada 592


Routing

Flamingo Road is designated as Nevada 592 from Nevada 595/Rainbow Boulevard east to Nevada 582/Boulder Highway. This major east-west arterial serves the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) and the Las Vegas Strip, when it intersects Las Vegas Boulevard. At this busy intersection, the major casino-resorts include the Flamingo (NE corner), Bally's (SE corner), Bellagio (SW corner), and Caesar's Palace (NW corner). A route gap exists between Interstate 15 and former Nevada 605/Paradise Road; otherwise, the rest of Flamingo Road between these two points is state maintained.
