A cluster of pedestrian bridges planned for Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue moved a step closer to reality Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
An artist rendering of the bridge project shows a possible design of an oval shaped structure built over the Sahara intersection, with staircases and escalators dropping down on each corner on Las Vegas Boulevard.
In 2019, the bridge was noted to cost $27.5 million in city documents, but Jace Radke said the final price was not yet determined.
The intersection is a gateway between downtown Las Vegas and the Strip and has seen multiple pedestrian-related crashes around it. An average of 69,000 vehicles pass through the intersection daily, according to 2019 Nevada Department of Transportation data.

The project could cost as much as $40 million, according to the city of Las Vegas, but the projected price tag could decrease depending on pricing tied to supply costs at the time of construction, the city reported in a blog post. In 2019, the city estimated the project, which is a collaboration with Clark County and the Regional Transportation Commission, would cost $27.5 million.
