Looks like they had a good portion leveled and ready to pave.
I didn't really examine it. I just happened to look as I drove by.

Another (final) update:

It's open. I don't know why I have a fascination with this fairly mundane piece of infrastructure. Maybe because I drove west on Harmon from the Strip once and was perplexed that it dead ended in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway, here's a article, complete with video of driving through the ramps.

That's the Las Vegas way. Until there is some sort of development that supports the spending they don't build logical roadways. Thankfully it seems there are fewer and fewer of the insane 3 lanes down to 1 lane then back up to 3 lanes roads, but I'm sure some still exist.

Intriguing. Think we will go down and run it a couple of times. Decide if it is useful. Most of us locals have a couple of pet ways to approach the Strip. Never drive down Las Vegas Blvd except if entertaining out of town guests.

Most of us use east or west routes and avoid the Blvd.

Hope after all these years you are not trying to live close to the strip...Don't do it even though you are Manhattan experienced. I am too - born there - went to college there - and had what was in some ways the best two years of my career on the upper east side. Married a Bellevue RN. Cannot get any more NYC than that.

Nah. I live in a coop apartment in Manhattan. If I ever get out there, I'll probably get a house somewhere around the beltway. Places like up the hill Henderson, far west Summerlin (think Paseos or nearby), or maybe far west Spring Valley, west of the beltway, if I want to save money. However, I could do something absurd, like getting a condo in Park Avenue or Manhattan.

But I'd probably be down on the strip pretty often, playing poker
