Question:

As mentioned in the IVLV newsletter, finally someone is going to build a new professional sports / event arena in Las Vegas. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question . . . Considering the location of the newly proposed arena, one block East of the Las Vegas Strip and in the heart of the Strip with more than 60,000 hotel rooms within 1.5 miles, do you think this is going to be nothing more than the largest traffic jam in the world, or is this going to work for residents and visitors alike? Is this a good or bad location? What is your opinion? Good or Bad, we want to hear from you.

I feel it is time to replace the old Thomas and Mack and build a new arena. Good idea. Lidia Belkcamp Michigan

Bad location, what are they thinkin right in the middle of the strip. Traffic is going to get worse if thats possible. I visit 3 times a year and have learned to cercomvent the strip whenever I can. Can you imagine the traffic added to an allready bumper to bumber road. And not to mention they have no team lined up. Hello! Unless they have a plan for a parking area and I'm thinking they do,the suits had to discuss this over there coffe and donuts it will turn out to be a cluster----. Ralph Didomonic

I'm from Philadelphia and live close to the Eagle's statium, the Phillies's statium, the Wachovia Ctr. and the old Spectrum. I can assure you that traffic will be a bigger mess in your beautiful city (I've been there 9 times) than anyone can fanthom. The only possible good senerio I can see would be if the majority of attendees at any event were visitors using cabs or walking...however, I don't see that happening with the locals wanting to support their home team. BAD, BAD LOCATION! Mike Erickson Phila. Pa

No matter where they build a sports arena it will be againt traffic mess! one solution is to have all streets one way with all entrances & exits being right turns only. Richard Goodman Glenview,Il

This is a bad idea. Traffic along the Strip crawls and comes to a near halt whenever there is a major event held in Las Vegas. A professional team will need to draw atleast 15,000 in attendence each home game to surrive. This means more overcrowding to an already crowded Las Vegas Strip. Joe Holoubek Evergreen Park, IL

Seriously, do we need another venue? MGM and Thomas & Mack aren't enough? When and only when a pro team signs on then consider an arena. David Ratz Springfield IL

Las Vegas has the Monorail running on that side of the strip currently and I hear that it is going to be expanded to the airport. If they build an off-site parking in an area that would not cause any conjestion, with shuttles to and from, along with the monorail and current bus systems, I see no added. Candy Quiles Cleveland, Ohio

Look at the traffic plan for any other 20,000 seat arena in the country. Like a shopping mall at Christmas, the traffic plan allows "circulation" to keep cars moving while people come and go from the flow. The trick here will be to keep the flow away from The Strip, and work it between Koval, Flamingo, Paradise, and Harmon/Tropicana. The I-15 exits at Flamingo and Tropicana will be important, as will adding lanes to Harmon and Koval. They need them anyway. Include Monorail with admission. Don Bartley Portland, OR

It seems to me there is a high potential for so much traffic you will utlimately irritate tourism which may have a tendency to reduce visitors & therby reducing spending they bring. Put the arena further away from the strip & just use a new monorail. That is if they are really ready for such a project. Larry Strehl Tampa

I have been to sold out events at the Grand Garden and traffic was no worse than a Saturday on the strip. Hopefully a monorail station will be attached. Greg

Who cares? I do not normally drive when I come to LV. To me it will be just like another large convention gathering. I do feel for the locals that come to the strip to gamble. The closer the better for me if I decide to take in a game while I am here. Doug Brobst Virginia Beach, VA
