LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – We’re counting down to Super Bowl 58 in Las Vegas. We have less than two weeks to go until the big game on February 11th when the Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium. With the big game coming up soon, preparations are well underway around Allegiant, along the Strip, and at the airport.
Super Bowl weekend is normally one of the busiest weekends every year in Vegas but now hundreds of thousands of extra fans will be coming for the big game.
Signs of the Super Bowl are everywhere on the Strip including giant roman numerals in the fountain in front of Caesars Palace.
The entire stretch of Las Vegas Blvd. in from of the Fountains of Bellagio are in the process of be transformed into a television set for the broadcast production.
Every pedestrian bridge over the Strip is also getting a new look and giant decals added. The pillars of the bridges are wrapped in NFL logos, one with a gigantic slot machine lever and goal post added. All along the Strip, there’s also a lot of traffic as cones block lanes as set up and construction continue.
Over at Allegiant, the parking lots has been transformed into a tent town and security is stationed around the stadium around the clock.
Harry Reid International also getting ready for the super rush of the Super Bowl travel. They’ve been communicating with other airports in past Super Bowl host cities to prepare. They’re putting a special emphasis on the Monday after the big game as visitors are looking to fly home.
“TSA is going to have extended hours at the checkpoints. Some of the concession options are going to stay open later or open earlier to accommodate those passengers coming through. Really just making sure people are able to get here and flow through to the gate as quickly as they can,” shared Joe Rajchel, spokesperson for the Reid International.
