Question:
Starting in October 2006, the one way street leaving the Las Vegas airport (Swenson) will begin construction to extend to Harmon. In an attempt to remove the traffic from the airport faster, the additional lane reversals will take about 6-12 months to complete. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Do you think more streets in Las Vegas should be only one way street, including Las Vegas Blvd. (The Strip) or leave them alone? What is your Opinion?  Why or Why not?
 
Reader Poll Replies:

I dont like one way streets, makes it to hard to go all the way across to enter a business if you are in heavy traffic.  Robert D. 

I think it is a great idea, less congestion and people crossing over Las Vegas Blvd have only got to worry about one way of traffic coming at them rather than two.  Nancy Lawson  Painesville OH

 I think that they should be left alone because we have way to much traffic coming in and out of here on a daily basis already, the traffic is already getting congested, instead of one way streets we need to widen more streets going in both directions. Plus people out here are not the best drivers, we dont need to confuse them anymore than they already seem to be by creating one way streets.  Amber  Henderson NV

* Leave them alone. Trying to manuever around Las Vegas and particularly the strip is difficult enough without having to circle what you call a block - more like a mile where I come from. Seems it would not only be more time consuming for us tourists who prefer to drive but also more expensive for those who are taking a cab. Dolores Randmark  Mount Prospect IL

* Having some streets as one way would be a good idea but not he Strip. My wife and I enjoy driving the Strip when we come to town. It is great to drive both ways and see the sights.  Chris Koch  Ashland, Ohio

*   I have heard some really dumb things today like the lady who freaked on the plane coming from our brothers in England. and now to even consider making the strip one way is doing dumb one better. how can you possibly do this? What makes the strip so great is the two way traffic going north and south. making entrance to all hotels available. what you can do to help traffic flow with other streets, making some one way is fine. but lets not get dumb and make the strip one way for petes sake. Ralph DiDomonic

*  I think that one-way streets will improve the efficiency of the traffic flow. However, it will be at the price of added confusion and loss of some convenience.  Bryan T. Miller  Boyne City, MI

(yes) One way on the strip would make it more safe. the people coming to Vegas really don't look to see if traffic is coming at them.  jim miller worcester ma

Whatever else is done with the Las Vegas streets, the Strip should definitely remain two-way traffic. It's a mess now, but it would be an even bigger mess if it were to be made one-way. One of the reasons I come to Vegas repeatedly is because I can get around very easily with public transportation. That would NOT be the case if the Deuce and Trolley were not able to traverse the Strip in both directions.  L. A. Graham  Lynn, MA

* No Way, no more one ways! I have driven regularly in Vegas for years, I have family in the area. I have frequently seen people trying to turn the wrong way on one way streets, and sometimes succeeding! It's hard enough to drive in a new town without being stuck in a maze of one way streets.  Angela Carameli  Lorain, OH

I believe there should be More "One Way" streets including the "Strip". A novel idea regarding the Strip...perhaps it could alternate directions on an even/odd year basis? That way, it may tend to balance out any inequities.  Larry J. Burton  Clinton, NJ

*  leave alone.  Carol Allen  Greenbrier, AR

one way traffic should ease the flow - especially on the strip....why not try it during the "summer" months. that way the "sno-birds" can't complain. the locals will know all the ways around it. Go for it!  Marco Cocozza  Naples, Fl

* Yes, more streets should be dedicated as one-way streets with the exception of Las Vegas Blvd. Streets parallel to the L.V. Blvd would well serve relieving the congestion if they were one-way. However, L.V. Blvd is so unique that it should remain a 2-way so that world wide travelers could enjoy seeing the extraordinary sights from each direction. It is worth the trip and it is free!  Ken Arasim  Kenmore, WA

* I am not familiar with vegas streets but i do know this the strip will never (and i mean Never) be one way....it would be nice if they could
hook up the mono-rail with the airport.  bob nicholas concord, nh

* Yes! Sure - the Swenson Street idea is a good one. Remember that Paradise is one-way going into the airport. Also, the new rental car facility will get all of the outgoing rentals leaving from the same place.
But -- The Strip! No Way! The two way traffic is part of The Strip. The Strip is not just Las Vegas Boulevard . No, it is part of what makes Las Vegas different from everywhere else. Just as Broadway and 42nd street do for New York. Sure, add some one-ways but leave the strip alone!  Bill Sheneman  Red Hill, PA

*  With Las Vegas expanding on a nearly daily basis, one way streets might actually be the future of The Strip. Imagine Las Vegas Blvd allowing northbound traffic only, while Frank Sinatra Drive/Industrial Road would accommodate south bound traffic. I could see Frank Sinatra/Industrial becoming a new, southbound version of Strip which would house even More casinos and hotels! Less traffic congestion for motorists -- and more growth for Vegas tourism!  Kristine ONeal  Battle Creek, MI
