Paradise Road to Eastern Avenue RTC construction
Median construction will close the inside lane in both eastbound and westbound directions. This closure will take place 24-hours a day for approximately the next three months.

Now through Monday, September 7, westbound Flamingo traffic will not be able to turn left onto Escondido St.  as the left hand turn lane has been closed.   Construction work will soon start on the corner of Flamingo and Escondido and this will effect eastbound traffic as well.

We have a couple of options for you to access the library’s parking lot shown in the maps below. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 702-507-3421.
